Kent Police have issued a statement after two of their officers were charged with misconduct following the death of a man in Gillingham.
The death of Colin Holt was a tragic event, and on behalf of the force I express my condolences to his family and friends. Police officers deal with extremely challenging situations every day and in this case they responded to a very difficult set of circumstances. As this is now a criminal matter I cannot comment any further at this time.
