Police were called to Strood last night after a woman reported she was a victim of a "targeted plot".

A Kent Police spokeswoman confirmed that just before 8pm the woman was travelling down Gravesend Road when an object - thought to be a milk bottle - was thrown from a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.
