An investigation is underway after part of a balcony collapsed on a residential street in Ramsgate.
The iron structure partially came away from the first floor of a property and ended up overhanging a walkway below before firefighters made the scene safe.
Firefighters were called to Augusta Road just after 9.30 this morning.
“Using a height vehicle as a crane, crews were able to remove the section of balcony and lower it to a safe location.
“The building was made safe and duty of care was handed over to the owner of the building.
“The cause of the balcony collapse isn’t known and there were no reported injuries.”
Shocking footage has been released showing a man deliberately scratching or 'keying' a series of cars on a quiet residential street in Ramsgate at 4am in the morning.
Now one of the owners of those cars has come forward, to help identify the vandal, that has left the owners with bills totalling thousands of pounds.
Evidence collected by neighbours shows that the crime spree ran between St Luke's Avenue and Thanet Road, where neighbours woke up on Saturday morning to find that their cars had been damaged.
As Tony Green reports.
Tony spoke to Mandy Pearce and Steve Waters who are both victims of crime.
Two men involved in dealing drugs in Thanet have been jailed.
Shaquille Walters and Alan Da Silva both 21 years old were sentenced at Canterbury Crown Court after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of class A drugs as well as possessing a knife.
No drugs were found when the pair were arrested, however, evidence from their mobile phones confirmed they were involved in drug dealing.
Although no drugs were found, it was clear from the other evidence we found that Walters and Da Silva were involved in supplying drugs. They were contributing to an illegal trade which is not welcome in Thanet, and Kent Police will continue to work to bring down those who try to bring drugs to the area.
