A man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a pedestrian who was hit by a car in Gillingham.

John O'Donohue, 33, was fatally injured when a stolen Ford Mondeo estate was driven at him in Castlemaine Avenue.

Mr O'Donohue had been walking with a friend after an argument with two men in the car when he was run over on Thursday night. His friend was unhurt.

Kent Police said they had arrested a 25-year-old Swindon man on suspicion of murder.

Detectives said the car that hit Mr O'Donohue had been used as a weapon.

A 20-year-old man from Rochester was arrested on Sunday by police investigating the death.

He was questioned on suspicion of the supply of a controlled drug and affray and has been released on bail.

Officers are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
