Castle in Kent used to advertise Leeds holiday

British Airways was left slightly red-faced when a picture of Leeds Castle was was printed on an email sent to customers urging them to visit Leeds, in West Yorkshire.

The airline advertised the “glittering nightlife” in Leeds with a picture of Leeds Castle in Kent and e-mailed it as an 'Autumn deal' to customers.

People were quick to pick up on the blunder on Twitter.

Kent Police is appealing for witnesses to come forward following a road traffic collision on the Wainscott Bypass in Medway.

At 8pm on Friday 17 October a red Renault HGV was driving along lane one of the A289 London-bound carriageway when it manoeuvred to avoid a broken-down grey Saab.

As it did so, the lorry collided with a blue and white Suzuki GSXR motorcycle causing its rider to come off his bike.

The carriageway was closed for a number of hours whilst officers from Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit carried out their enquiries.

The motorcyclist sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to hospital where his condition is described as stable.

One man has been arrested and bailed pending further investigations.

Kent Police is keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or been in the area in the moments beforehand.

Witnesses are urged to contact the dedicated SCIU appeal line on 01622 798538 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
