A CCTV image has been issued by officers investigating an assault in Tonbridge.

On 27 May 2020, a cyclist in his 20s was travelling along London Road towards the junction with Shipbourne Road when a man stepped into the road in front of him.

‘We are now releasing an image of a person who may be able to assist us with our enquiries and I would urge anyone who knows him to contact us.’
