A teenage girl has been charged after officers were repeatedly spat at while responding to an emergency call.

Kent Police was called at 10.40am on Sunday 19 December 2021 following a report of a disturbance at a supermarket in Westwood Road, Broadstairs.

Officers attended and spoke to a girl who was refusing to leave the store. While attempting to return the girl home, a PC had a lamp thrown at him, narrowly missing him. Another PC was then spat at.

In custody at Canterbury Police Station, another officer was kicked in the arm and spat at and a fourth officer was spat at three times.

A 15-year-old girl, who is from the Herne Bay area and cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with four counts of assaulting an emergency worker and one count of criminal damage.

She was due to appear before Folkestone Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 21 December.
