A man has been charged with attempted murder after a woman was hit by a car in Gravesend on Sunday.

Police were called to Dering Way at just before 10am after reports of a collision between a car and a woman.

Minutes later a car was on fire in the same road.

Patrick Molloy, 28, from the town has been charged with attempted murder. He is also accused of driving a motor vehicle without a licence, using a motor vehicle without third party insurance, failing to provide a specimen for analysis and criminal damage.

Officers attended along with Kent Fire and Rescue Service and South East Coast Ambulance Service.
