A public consultation on the planned £2bn Paramount theme park has attracted 1,500 people in its first three days, its organisers have said.

Exhibitions will be held across the Kent boroughs of Dartford and Gravesham at 10 locations in April and May.

The developers have said the entertainment resort will bring up to 27,000 jobs to the area.

However, more than 50 companies on the Swanscombe Peninsula have said they fear compulsory purchase orders.

The developers said the theme park would have more than 50 rides and attractions based on films and TV programmes.

The plans have yet to get government approval.
