A man who 'gatecrashed' a Kent race track has had his bail extended.

Jack Cottle, 21, was arrested after allegedly bypassing security to get on to the track during a four-hour Beetle race back in June.

Cottle, of Tonbridge, claims he has had death threats after footage was posted on YouTube and Facebook showed the car entering the circuit.
