A teenage girl who led police on a 15 mile, high speed chase from Ashford to Canterbury has been arrested.

During the early hours of Monday 27 June 2022, officers from the Tactical Operations Unit were on patrol in the area of the A28 in Ashford when a red Skoda came to their attention, being driven at high speed.

The officers pursued the vehicle through narrow country lanes and being driven on the wrong side of the road, at one point reaching a speed of over 120mph before a stinger was used to bring the vehicle to a stop on the A2 at Wincheap.

The driver, a 17-year-old girl from Ashford was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, dangerous driving, driving without insurance, driving with no licence and taking a motor vehicle without consent.

She has since been released while enquiries continue.
