A road in Margate was cordoned off yesterday morning (January 1) following a report of a teenager with a head injury.
Officers were called to Sanger Close at Mere Gate (Tivoli) at 6.44am.
A police spokesperson said: “Kent Police was called at 6.44am on Tuesday 1 January to reports of a teenager who had suffered a head injury in Sanger Close, Margate.
“Officers attended the scene and the teenager was taken to a London hospital for treatment. Enquiries remain ongoing.”
It is not yet clear how the teen suffered the injury although accidental cause, including a fall in the road, has not been ruled out.
Police say an earlier call to Mere Gate to a reported fight is not being linked to the Sanger Close incident.
A spokesman added: “Kent Police was called at 6.41am on Tuesday 1 January to reports of a fight in Mere Gate, Margate.
“Officers were dispatched but those involved left the scene. Enquiries are ongoing.”
