A full-size Thomas the Tank Engine has been involved in a collision on the Kent and East Sussex border.

A lorry carrying the train crashed with a van on the A28 at Newenden at about 0700 BST on Tuesday.

It was on its way to Tenterden for a Kent and East Sussex Railway (K&ESR) event this weekend.

Graham Baldwin, from K&ESR, said: "Engineers will rigorously examine Thomas to make sure that he is fit for duty."
