Brands Hatch motor racing circuit said it is hopeful its events will go ahead as planned this year despite coronavirus.

A spokesman said: "Evidence suggests that sport events are not a major contributory factor in the spread of viruses, and the UK government has made it clear that there is no justification to postpone or cancel sporting events as things stand."

He said if a race meeting is postponed because of coronavirus all tickets will be valid for the rescheduled event, or, if customers are unable to make that rescheduled date, a refund will be given.

If any events are cancelled, customers will automatically get a refund.

"Fans should continue to book tickets with total confidence," the spokesman said.

Sevenoaks: Conservative hold

Laura Trott has been elected MP for Sevenoaks, meaning that the Conservative Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.

The new MP beat Liberal Democrat Gareth Willis by 20,818 votes. This was fewer than Michael Fallon’s 21,917 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Seamus McCauley of the Labour Party came third and the Green Party's Paul Wharton came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.6 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 51,000 people, 71% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the six candidates, Paul Wharton (Green), Paulette Furse (independent) and Sean Finch (Libertarian) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
