Five people were arrested after a number of vehicles were reported stolen from a school in the Tonbridge area.

The vehicles were recovered, along with stolen power tools, after the Kent Police Roads Unit teamed up with the South East Police Air Service.

After the stolen vehicles were located with a suspect vehicle, the fleet was followed by the Police Air Service and halted by a stinger laid by the Kent Police Roads Unit.

The incident was recounted on the Kent Police Roads Unit Twitter account @KentPoliceRoads at 12:48am this morning (Tuesday).

According to data released by DVLA, the number of cars stolen in 2020 was 74,769, which represented a 33 per cent increase on the figures for 2019.

The numbers equate to a car being stolen in the UK every seven minutes and the Office for National Statistics have also confirmed that 72 per cent of stolen vehicles are never returned to their owner.
