Mick Jagger, Dartford's most famous son, has returned to his old strutting ground.

The rock legend paid a visit to Dartford Grammar School, where he was a pupil, and opened an extension to the arts centre named after him.

The 66-year-old Rolling Stones star, who was born in the town, gave his seal of approval to a massive £900,000 facelift to the Mick Jagger Centre at the West Hill school.

A new foyer and impressive dance studio with glass floor-to-celiing mirrors have been built.

Jagger toured the new facilities with his 42-year-old fashion designer partner L’WrenScott before watching a performance by pupils.

The last time Jagger visited his home town was in March 2000, when he opened the Mick Jagger Centre.
