Police are investigating after a young girl was caught on camera standing through the sunroof of a fast-moving car in Medway.
Passers-by were stunned to see the youngster's head and shoulders out the top of the Mercedes - travelling at 40mph on a busy main road in Gillingham.
Passenger Lucy Sheridan spotted the child standing out of the car on a dual-carriageway close to Medway police station and captured it on video.
