A Kent Police dog has helped officers to arrest a man in Rainham.

PD Olly, pictured, tracked down the man after officers requested him to stop driving in Oak Lane, Sittingbourne.

The man failed to stop for officers on last Tuesday and police pursued him to Taswell Road in Rainham where he then abandoned the car and ran from the scene.
