A man has been flown to a London hospital after a car overturned.

The Sheppey crossing was closed for nearly nine hours last night while police and paramedics were at the scene.

Officers were called at 7.20pm to the A249 near the Cowstead Corner roundabout in the carriageway heading to Sheppey.

A silver Alfa Romeo GT JTDM left the carriageway near and came to a stop in a field.
