Officers investigating a fatal collision in Ramsgate have made a renewed appeal for witnesses.

The incident happened outside the multi-storey car park in Leopold Street at around 9.35pm on Wednesday 10 August 2022.

A black Alfa Romeo car was involved in a collision with five pedestrians, all members of the same family, including a man in his 80s and a woman in her 30s, who both sadly died a short time afterwards.

A girl of primary school age and a man in his 40s also suffered serious injuries and were taken to a London hospital. A boy of primary school age sustained minor injuries.
