Two teenagers are being sought by police after a milk float stolen in Dartford later crashed into parked cars.

It is believed a girl and a boy, thought to be aged 16 to 18, took the float from St Vincent’s Road at around 6.10am on July 17.

They lost control of the vehicle and it crashed into parked cars, causing extensive damage to several of them.

The offenders are believed to be a slim white female around 5ft 3ins tall, who has dyed blonde hair and dark roots tied back. She was wearing a leather jacket and blue jeans.

Her accomplice was a slim white boy with short fair hair who was wearing beige shorts and trainers and carrying a bag with a long strap.

Both escaped on foot along an alleyway in Carlisle Road, leading to Bayley Road.

Investigating officer, Det Con Gerry King, said: “What probably seemed like a prank to them has caused a great deal of annoyance and stress to others. We won’t tolerate people behaving like this in our streets.

“We have compiled an e-fit of a female we believe could help us with our enquiries and ask anybody who recognises her, or who has information about the incident, to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Det Con King on 07772221208, quoting crime reference XY/22027/13, or call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
