Officers investigating an incident which led to a man being pinned against a tree by a car in Canterbury are appealing for witnesses.
At about 3.40pm on Monday 5 October 2020 the victim reported that he drove along Bekesbourne Lane, Littlebourne when he came across a grey Vauxhall Insignia that had stopped between gates two and three of the zoo.
