Maidstone and Dover road crashes leave three dead
Three people have died in two separate road crashes in Kent.
Two men died at the scene of a two-car crash on the A229 Linton Hill near Maidstone just before 04:00 BST, Kent Police said.
They were both travelling in one of the cars involved. The driver of the other car was injured.
In a second crash in the early hours near Dover, a car left the road and overturned. Police said a passenger died at the scene.
Officers said the car ended up on its roof in a field beside Sandwich Road at Eythorne at about 02:00.
The woman who died was in her early 20s, police said.
A 21-year-old man who was also thought to be a passenger was taken to hospital where he is in a critical condition, police added.
Both roads were closed while the collisions were investigated but have since reopened.
