Two Thanet men have had not guilty verdicts returned on one charge each of money laundering.

Matthew Brown, of Margate, and Mark Marshall, of Cliftonville, were found not guilty on May 22 following a trial at Southwark Crown Court.

The arrests had taken place after warrants were carried out in 2019 at six properties across Dartford, Margate and Ramsgate as part of an investigation by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

There were also hung verdicts for four other men charged with money laundering and two with additional drug offence charges.
