Detectives remain at the scene of an incident in Gravesend where 13 people were injured by a car.

Kent Police have revealed the car was a Suzuki Vitara.

It drove into Blake’s nightclub in Queen Street at about 11.45pm on Saturday, March 17.

Police attended and arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder. He is believed to have been asked to leave the club earlier in the evening following an altercation, and remains in custody.

This is not being treated as a terror-related incident.

Although 13 have been confirmed injured, police believe several others may have left the scene and are working to establish how many further victims there may be.

Several of those hurt suffered broken bones but none of their injuries are described as life-threatening or life-changing.

The incident is being investigated by detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate in partnership with the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, and any witnesses are asked to call 0800 096 1011 or visit https://mipp.police.uk quoting reference 17-1376.
