Officers in Herne Bay issued two motorists with Traffic Offence Reports after they were seen driving at more than 40mph in a 30mph zone.

In Canterbury city centre, around 20 riders of mopeds, e-scooters and bicycles were spoken to and advised they should not be riding in the area.

Sergeant Lee Thompson, of the Canterbury Community Policing Team, said: ‘Kent Police is aware of the frustration dangerous and nuisance drivers cause for residents in the district.

‘It is every motorists’ duty to ensure they drive in a way that does not impact on others, but we will continue to carry out operations like this one to remind drivers of that responsibility.’
