Air ambulance

A woman was flown to a London hospital yesterday (May 13) with serious injuries after being hit by a vehicle in a car park at Westwood.

Emergency services were called to the incident, by Bannatyne’s, at midday.

A man was arrested and bailed pending further enquiries.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police was called to a report of a collision involving a van and a pedestrian at around midday on Monday 13 May.

“Officers attended the scene in a car park in Westwood Road, Broadstairs, along with the South East Coast Ambulance Service.

“A woman sustained serious injuries and was flown to a London hospital.

“A 38-year-old man from Aylesford was arrested in connection with the collision and has been bailed pending further enquiries.”


  1. My thoughts are with this woman and her family. I wish her well.

    The entrance to Bannatynes and the car park itself are dangerous in that there is not much space in which to manoeuvre. The layout has not been designed in a way to guarantee the safety of pedestrians. They need to rethink the layout in order to prevent another accident.

  2. Wishing a speedy recovery to the woman involved. However, being a current member, I cannot stay silent on the fact that club members are constantly rushing out and in-front of traffic when leaving and entering the building. I have never had to emergency stop so often and in the same area before in all my years; and I know that I am not alone in knowing this knowledge.
