Thieves have stolen a section of paving stones from a village in Kent in the second such incident to be reported to police in the county within weeks.

It is believed the offenders erected false signage at Riverside in Eynsford and made off with the stones between the afternoons of 19 and 20 November.

Kent Police said the local authority confirmed no works were scheduled in the area at the time.

Officers said they had not ruled out a link to a similar theft in Rochester.

One man has been questioned and released on bail in connection with the incident on 22 November.
