Police issue statement after death on A2

Kent Police say they are not treating the death of a man on the A2 earlier today as a suspicious death.

There was a collision between a lorry and a pedestrian just after 6pm on the A2's Londonbound carriageway near Canterbury.

It is believed the man was in his twenties, but he has not yet been identified, nor have his next of kin been informed.

The road was closed for two hours with vehicles being diverted up to the M20 and A20, so forensic teams could gather evidence. The affected section of the A2 is expected to be opened shortly. Detectives are conducting an inquiry for the coroner.
