Police said a woman who had been stabbed and dumped by the side of the road was saved by a lorry driver, who stopped to investigate what he thought was a dead animal.

The woman, a 20-year-old from Folkestone, Kent, who had spent the evening with friends in a nightclub in Dover, had been stabbed in the stomach and chest and is believed to have been lying by the road in Lydden, near Dover, for some hours. A police spokesman said: 'She was left for dead, it was as callous as that.'

The victim, who was not named, was in a critical condition in intensive care at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital.
