By Aidan Barlow

Two teenage girls have been arrested following an alleged assault on a taxi driver.

The 16-year-olds from the Ashford area are believed to have gone joyriding to Bethersden on Monday, July 10.

Police issued an appeal to identify the duo after a taxi driver reported being attacked while in Standard Lane in the village, with dashcam footage used to track down the pair.
