Kent Police were called at 23:07pm following reports of a disturbance at an address in Holly Court, Northfleet.

Officers and ambulance crews attended and found a 29-year-old man with life threatening injuries who was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene.

A 17-year-old man and an 18-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The area remains cordoned to allow forensic officers to attend the scene. Road diversions are in place as the road is closed at Fishermen’s Hill junction with Ford Road.

A post mortem examination is expected to be carried out this afternoon.

The victim and the two men arrested were known to each other.
