Hundreds of exam papers have been cleared away after it's believed they were dumped in the centre of Rochester.

Council contractors were called in after what appear to be exam papers from last year were left dumped in Rochester.

One paper appears to show a Key Stage 2 maths exam, covered in dirt and looking as if it has been trodden into the ground.

On the paper there is the full name of a pupil, including the marks given by the examiner.

It also shows the Department for Education reference number and the school where the pupil sat the exam.

It comes after reports from a witness that hundreds of exam papers had been seen on the road near the Rochester Bridge - just feet from the busy high street.

Workers from Veolia Environmental Services were on Corporation Street clearing up the remaining papers just before 6pm today.

They said a lorry had been sent to pick up hundreds of papers, which had been left strewn along the street earlier that afternoon.
