Man Arrested Following 'Mass Gathering' Collision

Kent Police arrested a man in his 20's on suspicion of dangerous driving after several people were injured at a 'mass gathering' earlier today (Thursday 16th April).

It's been reported that 'more than 100 people were seen in the street' in Tonge Road, Murston for a funeral despite the current Coronavirus 'lockdown', which has been extended by the Government for a least another three weeks.

It is thought about 40 motorbikes were also in the road and an eye-witness, who wanted to remain anonymous, told SFM News: "it looked like someone had been hit by a motorbike near the junction with Portland Avenue.

The South East Coast Ambulance service confirmed that one person was flown to a Central London hospital and several others taken by road ambulance to the Medway Martime Hospital in Gillingham.

Kent Police's Serious Investigation Unit closed the road for several hours but the road re-opened earlier this afternoon.
