The bike rider was travelling along Rochester Road in the direction of Higham at around 6.20pm on 9 May when he was struck on the back with an unknown object.


He then collided with a horse and cart, which had been behind him, and fell from his bike.


The victim, who is in his 50s, sustained injuries to his upper body and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Investigating officers are appealing for the two men who were driving the horse and cart to get in contact as they may have important information that can help with their enquiries. The men did briefly stop at the scene, but left prior to the arrival of officers.

One of the men is described as white with a stocky build and aged in his 50s. He had short brown curly hair with the word ‘Brodie’ tattooed across the top of his back.

The second man is also described as white and is believed to be in his late 30s to early 40s with light brown hair.

Anyone with information that can help identify the men, or who was travelling in the area at the time and is in possession of dash cam footage, is asked to call Kent Police on 01474 366149 quoting reference 46/79427/20.
