A woman has died after being found in the central reservation on the A21 Tonbridge bypass.

Emergency services were called just before 4.30am but despite the best efforts of paramedics, the woman was pronounced dead an hour later.

The road was closed in both directions between Morley's roundabout and Vauxhall roundabout causing long delays.


Work to start on the A21

Roads Minister Mike Penning has given the go ahead for development work to start on the widening of the A21 in Kent. A section of the road was due to be turned into dual carriageway but the work was shelved in 2010 because of budget cuts.

The development work will focus on designing and consulting on proposals, along with progressing any necessary statutory processes.
