An Abbey Wood teenager who went on a joyride through south east Bexley and Dartford in a stolen £50,000 motor home has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Conna Herbert, 19, was at the wheel of the Ford Transit Hobby A65 when police officers spotted it travelling at speed in Hurstwood Avenue, Bexley, at around 4.10pm on March 24.

Travelling via Barnehurst Herbert ended up in Dartford where he was pulled over in Hawley Road before trying to flee police on foot.

The £51,985 motor home had been stolen from a garage forecourt in Canterbury overnight between March 21 and 22.
