Officers investigating the death of a man who fell from a bridge on to the Thanet Way are appealing for information.

Kent Police was called at 8.50pm on Friday 23 May to reports a man had fallen from a footbridge on to the London-bound carriageway of the A299 near Whitstable.

Officers and ambulance staff attended the scene but the man, believed to be in his late 40s/early 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene. His death is not being treated as suspicious but police would like to speak to anyone who saw a man near the bridge at that time.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Sergeant Ben Loose at Kent Police on 01233 896200.
