Two men have been arrested in connection with a spate of thefts from ambulances across Kent.

A 26-year-old from Dagenham and a 33-year-old from Whitstable were both arrested on Tuesday after ambulance stations pleaded for information.

The thefts saw medical equipment taken from vehicles, meaning they had to be taken out of service.
