Ten people have been arrested by Kent Police following a disturbance in the Bradstone Road area of Folkestone at around 1am on Thursday 28 November 2019.

Officers attended the scene and detained the men, aged between 24 and 50, on suspicion of drug offences.

They all remain in custody as enquiries continue. Among those arrested are two men seen on the roof a property.

Due to some of the suspects being seen with weapons, armed officers provided assistance to patrols.

Due to threatening behaviour, it was necessary to discharge a taser on two men and one was taken to a local hospital for a precautionary check.

A cannabis cultivation has been located at the address the suspects are reported to have targeted and enquiries to establish the full circumstances are ongoing.

Anyone who believes they have information that can assist officers is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/227396/19.
