Man, 63, dies after 'medical episode' at Headcorn station

A 63-year-old man who collapsed after an argument at Headcorn station on Friday has died in hospital, police have confirmed.

Officers initially treated the situation as a serious assault, with around 10 police cars and two forensic vans attending the scene and sealing off the car park while officers carried out a meticulous examination of the area.

Tarpaulin was draped over the front of a red Vauxhall taxi parked immediately outside the station.

However, officers later concluded the man was not assaulted and had suffered a "medical episode" after a verbal altercation outside the station.

He was taken to hospital in a critical condition, where he later died.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: "His family have been informed and are being supported by a specialist officer.
