According to a nearby resident, who lives on The Crescent, Aylesham Road has been "swarmed" by police.

Leah Southwell, 18 said: "The whole road was swarmed with police.

"Last night about 10 o'clock, I looked out my window and there were sirens, blue lights all down my road.

"At around fourish there were two vans, a little van and a squad car, and there was a fire engine as well.

"Nothing ever happens around here.

"It's just shocking to be honest."
