Advice has been issued to business owners as councils and police prepare for potential violence and rioting across north Kent.
Gravesham Borough Council has passed on information from the Metropolitan police to shop owners in the town centre advising them to move expensive goods out of view, ensure their CCTV is running and taking cash off the premises.
Dartford Council met with the town management earlier in the day to offer reassurances and both council leader Jeremy Kite and MP Gareth Johnson have spoken with police to ensure precautions are taken to prevent rioting spreading to the area.
