Police have launched a murder investigation after the death of a man from Gillingham. Paul Scott, 43, from Franklin Road, was out with friends near Balmoral Road in the town last Sunday when he was attacked by another man. Mr Scott was knocked to the floor and suffered a broken leg.
Initially, Mr Scott refused hospital treatment but after sometime in discomfort agreed to go to hospital where his leg was put in a cast. But on Thursday he returned to hospital in some pain and was later pronounced dead. A post-mortem revealed he died of a blood clot.
Officers are now appealing for witnesses to the attack on February 10 to come forward. Police would particularly like to speak to the man seen in the e-fit who seen in the area at the time. He is described as white, approx. 5ft 8ins tall, of a muscular build with short hair.
