Police have been called to Margate after two binmen were assaulted this afternoon (October 17)
Kent Police were called to Mere Gate at 12.16pm. They are currently on the scene carrying out enquiries.
Thanet council Director of Operational Services Gavin Waite said: “Attacks on the public servants who serve our communities are totally unacceptable. There is absolutely no justification for any worker to be threatened or abused while doing their job.
“Our refuse collectors carry out a vital role in keeping our community clean and tidy and this type of behaviour directed towards our staff will not be tolerated. The matter is currently being investigated by the police.”
