Banners highlighting alleged racism in the death of American George Floyd have appeared on flyovers in Sandwich.
The slogan #blacklivesmatter has been marked on sheets which have been fixed to both sides of a flyover on the A256 between the Bellar's Bush and Ash Road roundabouts.
One says "I'm sorry miss, your son was murdered because of the colour of his skin" while the other displays the name of campaign website justiceforBigFloyd.com with the twitter hashtag #blacklivesmatter.
It is not known who is responsible.
It comes after video went viral last week showing George Floyd choking as a police officer restrained him following an issue outside a shop in Houston, Minneapolis.
The BBC has today reported that a post mortem has confirmed he died of a cardiac arrest while being restrained.
Mr George's death, which triggered a round of protests in the US, has now been declared a homicide.
The officer, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter and will appear in court next week. Three other police officers have been fired.
Kent Highway Services have been asked to comment on the appearance of the banners.
