Police want to speak to a woman cyclist after a man fell from a bridge and died.
Officers and paramedics were called to the London-bound carriageway of the A299 Thanet Way near Whitstable at 8.50pm on Friday. It followed reports of concern for a man who appeared to have fallen.
The male, believed to be in his late 40s or early 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A road closure was put in place and traffic diverted. It was fully reopened at 1am.
His death is being treated as non-suspicious. However, Kent police is appealing for witnesses to come forward.
A spokesman said: "As part of ongoing inquiries, officers would like to speak to anyone with information about the incident. Particularly, anyone who may have seen a man near the bridge in the moments leading up to his fall – it is thought a female cyclist may have been in the area at the time and officers are keen to speak to her."
Anyone with information should contact Detective Sergeant Ben Loose on 01233 896200.
