The 52-year-old, of Chegworth Road, Harrietsham, has received a postal charge.

The death of the 27-year-old, of Florence Road, prompted an outpouring of grief from the town's tightknit biker community.

More than 100 bikers turned out to remember the Lithuanian at the Reca Community Biker Cafe, St Peter's Street, and walked to the scene of the tragedy near Formula One Autocentre, laying flowers along the route.

They also raised £3,600 for his repatriation.
