Two suspects have been arrested in connection with an alleged killing in Kent.

Police arrested a teenage girl from Hove and man in his 20s in Brighton after a stabbing in Rochester.

Peter Beale was stabbed under a railway bridge in the High Street of the Medway town on Tuesday.

It has been reported that a total of six people, including the two from Brighton and Hove, have now been arrested as part of the inquiry.

The pair are believed to have been arrested today, and remain in custody.

Officers from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are investigating the case.

The Argus:

They confirmed that Mr Beale suffered injuries "consistent with stab wounds".

The 39-year-old father-of-two also had a wife called Esther.

Friend Vicky Beaney has set up a Go Fund Me page in a bid to raise £5,000 for his funeral.

"As this was such a brutal and unexpected attack, Esther is asking for any help anyone could give," she wrote.

She said his wife and children have been "left devastated and with out a father and husband".
