Police investigators are appealing for information following a collision involving a police vehicle in Teynham, near Sittingbourne.

At 12.37am on Sunday 26 May 2024, an officer driving a marked patrol car was responding to an urgent call with the vehicle’s sirens sounding and blue lights illuminated, when it was involved in a collision with a white Ford Focus on the A2 London Road. The police officer and the two occupants of the other car suffered minor injuries in the early morning incident.

A 39-year-old local man, who was driving the Ford Focus, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. He was later bailed to return to the police station, pending further investigation.
