'No prosecutions' over Sheppey crossing crash

More than 30 drivers have been offered training courses instead of prosecution after the 130-vehicle Sheppey crossing crash in September.

The vehicles collided in thick fog on the A249 bridge over a 10-minute period.

Eyewitnesses said some motorists were driving too fast for the conditions.

Insp Martin Stevens from Kent Police said an educational course would have a better outcome than prosecuting the drivers.

BBC South East's Simon Jones reports.
