The family of a Gillingham man who died after being attacked in the town have released a tribute to him. Paul Scott, 43, from Franklin Road, Gillingham, was out with friends near Balmoral Road in the town last Sunday when he was attacked by another man.

He suffered a broken leg but initially refused hospital treatment. Mr Scott later went to hospital to have his leg put in a cast but suddenly died on Thursday. A post-mortem revealed he had developed a blood clot.

A statement from his family said: ‘Paul was a well-loved father to his five children, sadly taken from us too soon following the untimely death of his sister on Boxing Day. This family has had too much hurt and heartache. Paul was an exceptional man with the kindest heart, fun and loving.’
