  1. Love the way the video starts with a bottle of Martini….. thankfully it’s the passenger taking recording it but the driver might want to put his seat belt on if there’s a next time, oh and your windscreen has a couple of cracks 😂😂

    Well done Kent Police 👍

  2. Glad to see the driver of the van slowing down and rubber necking ! As the passenger films lol really lol

  3. Shame there was no sound with the video, would love to have heard the conversation in that van lol.
