A 21-year-old man from Deptford has been charged with attempted murder after a car was driven into a Gravesend nightclub on Saturday (March 17).

Thirteen people were injured just before midnight after the Suzuki Vitara ploughed into the smoking area of the club. A man was arrested at the scene.

Kent Police has now confirmed Mohammed Abdul of McMillan Street has been charged with attempted murder. The incident is not being treated as terror-related.

Detective Chief Inspector David Chewter, senior investigating officer, said: “We have reason to believe the person responsible for the vehicle colliding with the nightclub had been asked to leave the venue earlier on in the evening.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the security staff at the nightclub as well as those members of the public who helped in the initial moments after the collision.

“Many people were injured as a result of the incident but none of their injuries are described as life-threatening or life-changing.

“However, we believe there may be more casualties out there who are yet to come forward and talk to us – we would like to hear from them as we continue to build a clear picture of what happened that night."
