A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after an 88-year-old pedestrian died when she was hit by a car.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident in London Road, Northfleet, just before 11:50 BST.

Kent Police said the crash, near the junction with Pier Road, involved an Audi A6 driven by a 27-year-old man from Northfleet, who is in custody.
