A gang of suspected thieves were arrested after they got caught in traffic at the Dartford Crossing.

The arrests were made after Kent Police officers were on patrol in Watling Street at 10.45pm last night (March 8).

Police became suspicious of a car and reports suggested the vehicle had links to several burglaries.

The car was followed along Princes Road to Bob Dunn Way and then along the A282.

When the silver BMW 5 series got caught in traffic near the crossing, police boxed it in before arresting the four occupants.

A 24-year-old man from Woolwich., a 26-year-old man from Ipswich, a 18-year-old man from Woolwich and a 16-year-old boy from Woolwich have all been arrested on suspicion of going equipped for theft.
