They searched the area and, at around 11.35pm, a patrol saw a suspicious vehicle and requested the driver to stop.

It is alleged the car did not stop and, following a chase, it came to a halt in Basser Hill, Lower Halstow, where the driver was arrested.

George Bignall, of Middletune Avenue, Sittingbourne was later charged with attempted burglary, dangerous driving, failing to stop when required by a police officer, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence or insurance and failing to provide a specimen of blood for a test.

The 42-year-old appeared before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday where he was remanded to a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on April 7.
