Punters had their evening pint interrupted last night when a man burst into the pub followed by six police officers.

A witness said the man ran into the Prince of Wales on Railway Street, Chatham, just after 9pm, shortly followed by two police officers.

She said: "A police car then pulled up and two officers jumped out, another two appeared on foot and tackled the man to the floor."
