Larkfield in lockdown after 'men dressed as bunny and Donald Trump' targets security van

A residential street was in lock-down after two men dressed as "Donald Trump and a dead bunny" tried to break into a security van.

Larkfield Road, off London Road, in Larkfield, was sealed off at around 10.30am after a G4S van was reportedly targeted as it waited outside a row of banks.

Half a dozen police officers were at the scene while forensic investigators carried out work.

George Hall, a controller at Place 2 Place Taxi Hire, heard the commotion at around 11am.

He said: "There was apparently some guy trying to break into the G4S van outside and he was wearing a bunny outfit.

"Our offices are on the road and we are only seven or eight metres away from the van.

"We didn’t see the actual incident but we heard the commotion and saw the police turn up.

"The whole road has been cordoned off and we can’t get out. I think the police got the guy who ran off.

"I was only told about one of them but there might have been more than one dressed as a bunny or dressed in other Halloween outfits."

While the cordon was in place staff and patients were unable to access Larkfield Dental Practice, in Larkfield Road behind the bank, and the surgery was forced to rearrange some appointments.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "Kent Police was called at 10.15am on 1 November 2017 to reports of an incident involving threatening behaviour in Larkfield.

"Officers have attended a location in London Road and inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the incident."
