A man was walking his twin cockapoos in London Road, at around 10.45pm on Monday, when a car travelled from the direction of Wrotham Hill and drove past him.

The grey Ford EcoSport then returned on the wrong side of the road before coming to a halt next to the dog owner.

It is alleged the man who was driving demanded he hand over his mobile phone, while two other men got out of the vehicle holding weapons.

The victim ran from the suspects but lost hold of Milo's lead.

The pup ran to a nearby pavement where it stood barking and was then struck by the Ford and died at the scene. The vehicle then drove off towards the M25.
