Bookings to take away bulky collections have been temporarily suspended.

The authority say it is all part of the impact on everyday life from the coronavirus pandemic and said if your bin has been missed in an expected collection, leave it outside and it will be emptied as soon as possible.

Kent County Council closed all its tips last Tuesday.

This is the latest in a number of actions taken by the authority as the crisis grows.
