Vale Road Police cordoned off Vale Road and parts of Tunbridge Wells common after the attack

A 53-year-old man found with a stab wound outside a Kent railway station is no longer in a life threatening condition, police have said.

The man from Tunbridge Wells was flown to a London hospital after police were called to the town's station in Vale Road at 17:30 BST on Thursday.

Kent Police arrested a 30-year-old woman from Southborough at about 18:00.

A 23-year-old man from East Grinstead in West Sussex was later arrested in Tunbridge Wells.

Both were questioned on suspicion of attempted murder and remain in custody.

Kent Police said: "He [the victim] is now in a stable condition which is no longer believed to be life threatening."

An area of the common in Vale Road, at the junction of London Road and Torrington Road, remains cordoned off.

Officers have urged witnesses to contact them.
