A woman was killed when the bike she was riding was involved in a crash with a lorry in a north east Kent village.

The cyclist, who was local and aged in her 70s, was fatally injured in the collision in London Road, Teynham, at about 10:15 GMT on Saturday.

Kent Police said the 58-year-old man from Essex who was driving the HGV had been arrested.

The road was closed temporarily in both directions while officers investigated the collision.

"The HGV and the cyclist were both heading towards Sittingbourne when the collision occurred opposite the Swan pub," Sgt Hannah Brown said.

"We have already spoken to a number of witnesses but are keen to speak to anyone else who saw the incident and has yet to speak to us."
