A 57-year-old man has been arrested and charged with a stalking offence, after he was reported by a woman in Dartford.

Kevin Downing, of Tonbridge Road, Maidstone, was arrested on Tuesday and charged the following day with a single count of stalking.

A spokesman for Kent Police said a report had been made by a woman in Dartford alleging that between October 9 and 26, Downing had behaved in a manner which caused her "serious alarm and distress".

The spokesman went on to confirm that following the charge, Downing was recalled to prison and will appear in front of magistrates on a date to be determined.
