John was taking a late night stroll with his partner when the stabbing happened.

The retired accountant, who has lived in Herne Bay for 20 years, told KentLive: "Myself and my partner were out for a late night walk, between 11pm and midnight, along the beach.

"As we crossed over to the road, we were greeted with a group of men brawling inside the bar.

"Tables were flying across the room as a mass fight had broken out between two groups of men.

"Soon after myself and my partner witnessed the horror of two of the men being stabbed, one in the stomach, and the other in the chest.

"Multiple patrons were nearby and recording the incident, whilst others rushed over to the injured men and attempted to stop the bleeding and ease the wounds.

"It was like a scene from a horror movie.

"Soon after a fleet of two ambulance and three police vehicles arrived at the bar and asked us to disperse.

"My partner and I have been worried sick after witnessing the brutal attack.

"I have been here many years and never seen such trouble like this before, the seafront used to be a safe place to be at any time of the day."

An investigation to establish the full circumstances of the incident is ongoing, says Kent Police.

Officers are asking anyone who saw the incident or who has any information, including relevant dashcam or CCTV footage, to call Kent Police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/106242/21.
