Incident in Vigo, Meopham

Posted: 05/03/2010 16:29:05

Kent Fire and Rescue Service is still at the scene of an incident in Vigo near Meopham (at 4.30pm).

Control room operators sent two fire crews to the site after receiving calls reporting a car alight, at 13:09 this afternoon (5 March) following suggestions of an explosion.

Firefighters tackled the fire using foam and assisted paramedics with a female casualty who has since been taken to hospital via Air Ambulance.

Crews are now on standby, assisting Kent Police officers with maintaining a cordon and road closures in Harvel Road, Commority Road and Southfield Road.

As a precaution, some nearby homes have been evacuated.

Army bomb disposal experts are now examining the vehicle. This is a precautionary measure to ensure there is no hazard before police begin a full forensic examination of the scene.

Members of the public are urged to stay away from the site while the emergency services work to bring the incident to a close.
