A man has been charged with rape after being extradited to the UK from Italy.

Mr Hamidy, who is accused of raping a woman in the Northwood Road area of Ramsgate last September, was taken into custody at Heathrow Airport on Tuesday.
The 24-year-old, formerly of High Street, Herne Bay, is due to appear at Canterbury Crown Court on Thursday.
