Podcast: Anger at plan to build footbridge over A249 as part of £92m work at M2 junction

Plans to build a new road bridge over the A249 as part of the Stockbury roundabout improvements have been scrapped – and replaced with a footbridge instead.

People living in the village fear it’ll be cut in half by the £92m project off junction 5 of the M2 and wanted a flyover for vehicles.

Our reporter talks us through this story.

Also in today’s podcast, a picture of a drag queen performing at Canterbury Pride has been vandalised in what’s feared could be a targeted attack.

The mural on the window of the former Debenhams store was ripped down and torn up.

We hear from Daniel Smith, who identifies as queer, about his experiences of the city, and the organiser of Kent’s biggest Pride festival.

And, thousands of children across Kent will be finding out today what secondary school they’ll be going to in September.

Parents were able to name up to four preferred choices.

Graham Jones is an education specialist at Whitehead Monckton solicitors in Maidstone and shares advice if you didn’t get your first choice.
