Kent Police officers investigating a murder are to return to the scene of the attack in a bid to trace witnesses.

Adrian Milner, 48, died in a London hospital on Sunday from head injuries received on 28 December in the attack in the Murston area of Sittingbourne.

The lorry driver was punched in the face by a man as he walked with a friend near the Co-op in Church Road.

Officers will speak to residents in the area on Tuesday evening, exactly two weeks after the attack.

The force said it was still missing information that would give them "the full picture" of what happened to the father of two.

Discarded clothing

Det Insp Lee Whitehead said Mr Milner was a very loving man who was close to his family.

"The family are devastated," he said.

"If anyone has any information that may provide the identity of the offender, particularly any clothing that may have been found or discarded - anyone acting strangely that relatives have got concerns about - we would just ask them to come forward."

The attacker is described as white, about 30 years old, of stocky build with brown shoulder-length hair.

He was wearing a dark jacket and carrying a white shopping bag. He may have been wearing a hat.

Two men aged 30 and 35 from Sittingbourne, arrested in connection with the investigation, were bailed until 28 January.
