A white van was spotted in the area and police went to the Brenley Corner roundabout near Faversham.

They spotted a white van heading towards London on the M2 and followed it while making checks on the vehicle's registration.

Police stopped the van just after junction six at Faversham - but a man jumped out and ran up the hard shoulder.

He was chased on foot by an officer who stopped and arrested him at 9.45pm. It is thought there may have been other men in the van who escaped.

The van, which had been reported stolen in March, was found to contain 30 boxes from the Wahl premises in Sea Street.

A 27-year-old man from the Catford area of south London is in custody being questioned in connection with the burglary and theft of the van.
