Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

THREE men have been ar­rested and two po­lice of­fi­cers hurt af­ter an at­tempted ram raid at a su­per­mar­ket.

An orange Dae­woo dig­ger was driven into the Sains­bury’s su­per­mar­ket at New Rom­ney 3.15am yes­ter­day, wreck­ing the awning and the front of the store.

It is the latest in a string of such in­ci­dents in the area.

A Toy­ota Land Cruiser had been driven through the car park wall and two 4x4 ve­hi­cles were found on the scene - one with the roof re­moved.

Po­lice of­fi­cers who were near to the scene ar­rested three men aged in their 20s and 30s and are look­ing for a fourth.

Dur­ing the ar­rest two of­fi­cers suf­fered bro­ken an­kles, one of which also suf­fered a bro­ken leg and may need surgery.

The at­tempted cash ma­chine raid comes in the week Kent Po­lice of­fered a £30,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the charg­ing and con­vic­tion of those re­spon­si­ble for re­cent cash ma­chine thefts in the county. See page 13.
