Hundreds of Reggae lovers are heading to the One Love Festival in Kent this weekend, to celebrate 50 years of Jamaican Independence.

For the first time, the event, which has been running at other sites for 5 years, is going to be held at Hop Farm in Paddock Wood.

Two years ago, Julian Marley, the son of Reggae legend Bob Marley played at the festival and this year it's part funded by a coffee company which is run by another of Bob Marley's sons Rohan.

The original One Love Peace Concert was a large concert held on April 22nd, 1978, at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

This concert was held during a political civil war in Jamaica between opposing parties - the Jamaican Labour Party and the People’s National Party.

The concert came to its peak during Bob Marley & The Wailers’ performance of “Jammin”, when Marley joined the hands of the two political rivals and appealed for unity.

A group of volunteers from Kent who helped stranded motorists on the island are holding an online auction to raise funds.

South East 4x4 Response sent four vehicles and five support staff down to the island on Saturday to help get vehicles out of the mud.

The volunteers describe the auction for “ souvenir mud “ collected on one of the vehicles as very tongue in cheek.
