Emergency services

Two men have been taken to hospital following an incident in Dane Valley this evening (July 27).

One of the men and a woman were arrested in connection with the ‘altercation’ in Tenterden Road/Elham Close.

Witnesses say one man was beaten and a dog was set on him. It is also understood a machete was used but this has not been confirmed by police.

A Kent Police spokesperson said: “Kent Police was called to an altercation at a residential property in the Tenterden Way area of Margate at 5.05pm.

“Officers attended and two men, who are known to each other, were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

“One of the men and a woman have been arrested in connection with the incident and officers remain at the scene carrying out enquiries.”


  1. thats more like it , i thought things were a bit quiet on the reservation .i wonder where dane valley is twinned with – any suggestions ?

  2. You do realize, don’t you, that “Thousands of people in Margate did not assault or murder somebody else this evening”, though true, will not appear in any newspaper?

    • So what level of antisocial behaviour / violence do you feel is perfectly acceptable then ? We could all choose to ignore it so long as it happens to others , but at some point it will affect someone closer to home at which point it becomes much more serious.

  3. God I’m glad I moved, over the past 10/15 years margate and cliftonville has turned into a ghetto. I feel very sorry for original thanet people who have to live with the scum that have been foisted on them.
