Britain's oldest brewer is to take on the world. Shepherd Neame, based in Faversham, have agreed a deal with an international distributor to sell their products around the globe.
They are hoping to cash in on what is seen as an increasing thirst for British beer in overseas markets. Alongside this deal, the company has also agreed to tie up with a North American brewer which will see it expand existing output in Canada and the United States.
The A251 Ashford Road is closed in Faversham between the A2 Canterbury Road and the M2 junction 6 (Faversham). It's due to a fire at a commercial laundry. 60 firefighters are on the scene and have been there since 4am.
There are reports of a large plum of smoke. There is no exit from the coastbound M2 at junction 6.
A medieval dungeon has been unearthed in Faversham in Kent when contractors were digging a new water main. It's believed the gaol dates from the mid century .
"In my entire career I've never found a dungeon before, so this is a really rare discovery. The site is beneath where the town's second Guildhall stood that was built during the mid-century. As you can imagine the noise and smell coming from the dungeon meant this wouldn't have been a pleasant place to work.'
