A suspect has been tracked and arrested by local response officers within an hour of a burglary being reported in Broadstairs.

Kent Police received a report at around 11.15pm on Thursday 13 July 2023 that a group of people with torches were on a building site in Chandos Road and were believed to be stealing items from the site.

As the people left the site, local response officers were able to work quickly with CCTV operators to track their direction of travel.

The suspects were seen again near the High Street and ran away on seeing police. One was stopped and arrested and enquiries are ongoing to identify the remaining two.

A 21-year-old man from Broadstairs was arrested on suspicion of burglary and has been bailed until 11 October.
