Two men have died after being struck by a car as they helped the driver of an overturned vehicle.

They were hit by a silver Mercedes on the A20 at Swanley as they helped the driver of a Vauxhall Astra at about 11:00 GMT on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old, from Crawley, and the 54-year-old, from south-east London, suffered fatal injuries, police said.

Six other people were hurt in the seven-vehicle crash on the London-bound carriageway.

The road was closed for 12 hours while investigations took place. Kent Police has appealed for witnesses.
