MURDER LATEST: Neighbours react to Maidstone murder

Saturday 1st August 2020

Residents have reacted with shock to the news that a murder investigation has been launched in Maidstone.

A man in his 50s sustained fatal injuries following an incident in Bower Place at 6.38pm on Friday, 31 July 2020.

Neighbours believe the murder may be linked to Thursday night's double stabbing.

One neighbour said: "That is the second night on the trot that there's been trouble here. Maidstone is not safe anymore.

"There was double stabbing here earlier this week, I think the two are connected."

“It makes you feel it’s not safe to go out at nighttime”
