Two men in their 20s have been arrested after a crash in Ashford in which a car driver died.

Kent Police said two Ashford men, aged 27 and 23, had been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and were being held in custody.

A Toyota Celica and a Volkswagen Golf crashed in Somerset Road at about 23:00 BST on Monday, officers said.

The driver of the Toyota, a man in his 20s from Ashford, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Earlier, police said the 27-year-old driver of the Golf had been arrested.

Officers later arrested the second man.

Det Sgt Scott Lynch said: "The collision occurred in a busy part of Ashford and I'd urge witnesses to the collision, as well as anyone who saw the vehicles before the collision, to contact police."

Officers also want anyone who saw a silver Renault Megane, which is thought to have been in the area at the time of the crash, to contact them.

The man who died has not yet been named.
