Ambulance and police have attended the scene of a crash on the A256 between Ramsgate and Sandwich,

The incident, reportedly involving a motorbike colliding into the back of a van on the Ramsgate Road, happened this evening (June 18) at around 5.40pm. Traffic has backed up past the Pegwell Country Park.

The road has been closed in both directions.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police was called at 5.46pm to reports of a collision between a motorcycle and a van on the A256 near Richborough.

  1. Coincidentally there was another motorcyclist crash on this stretch of road the day before also. I was confused with this report and thought it was the same incident, but no.
