A man has appeared in court charged with a serious assault in Birchington.

Kent Police was called to a report that a man had been assaulted in Rossetti Road at 11.25am on Wednesday 12 June.

Officers attended and two men had suffered injuries which required hospital treatment.

David Furlong, of Main Road, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, has since been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and possessing cannabis.

The 35-year-old appeared before Margate Magistrates’ Court on Friday 14 June and was remanded in custody to appear at Canterbury Crown Court on Monday 15 July.


  1. David Furlong flew into a rage and assaulted the shop worker after being told he would be unable to exchange a fishing net back in March 2022 in Mill View Cambridgeshire were he punched him several times to the face and headbutted him, he was sentenced to 3 years in prison.
    Sounds like just a nutter visiting Birchington-On-Sea with no refection on the village itself at all.

    • That’s the problem with these ghetto’s and sink villages like Birchington, they attract this type of person.

  2. what a dump thanet is , i wonder if all of these thousands of new houses will import a better class of nutcase ?

  3. Talking of nut cases standing at the bus stop yesterday the man next to me asked “do they have newspaper reporters attending court cases around here” l told me that I’ve no idea. He then replied “ oh you must be a good guy then if you’ve never been to court I’ve been to court shed loads, I’ve moved down here for a new start and if I do get nicked reporters might put it in the paper” lucky for me the bus came along and he got on it, I waited for the next bus hoping it wouldn’t have another nut case on it .
