Po­lice are hunt­ing the driver of a mod­i­fied Vauxhall As­tra af­ter a road rage in­ci­dent be­tween Pluck­ley and Hoth­field.

The vic­tim, the driver of a Volk­swa­gen Golf, in his 40s, said the trou­ble started when he over­took the As­tra on Mon­day, April 3, around 4.45pm.

He said that by the time he reached the junc­tion with the A20 Ash­ford Road, the As­tra had caught up with him.

He said the driver of the As­tra tried to open his door be­fore smash­ing his wing mir­ror.

The vic­tim said he then drove away down the A20 to­wards cen­tral Ash­ford but was fol­lowed by the As­tra driver.

The dis­tance be­tween the As­tra be­ing over­taken and the sec­ond at­tack on the vic­tim’s car at the Drovers round­about was nearly six miles.

When the man in the As­tra caught up with him again at the Drovers rounda- bout he at­tacked the Golf again, caus­ing fur­ther dam­age to pan­els on the front and rear driver’s side doors.

The As­tra driver was said to be white, in his mid to late 20s, and of large build.
