Kent Police investigators are appealing for witnesses to a disturbance on Christmas Day in Sheerness.

The incident happened on Saturday 25 December 2021 in a car park near Trinity Road.

At around 6.50am, it is alleged several people were involved in an altercation during which two cars were damaged.

Patrols were sent to the scene but those involved had left prior to their arrival. Following enquiries, a car was stopped by officers at junction 5 of the M2, at around 9.10am.

Five men in the vehicle were arrested on suspicion of affray. A sixth man located near the scene of the disturbance was detained in connection with the supply of controlled drugs.

PC Josh Davidson, of Sittingbourne CID, said: ‘We believe there were several members of the public in the area at the time of the disturbance and are appealing to any witnesses to contact our appeal line.

‘Motorists with dashcam and residents who have private CCTV are also asked to check for footage that may assist our investigation.’

Anyone with information should call Kent Police on 01795 419119, quoting crime reference 46/264885/21.

You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 or by using the anonymous form on their website.

All six arrested men were later bailed to return to the police station on 21 January 2022.
