Podcast: Residents rally to bring international trains back to Ashford

Residents say their town is in decline and has “lost its vibrancy” as they call for Eurostar services to resume running from Ashford International

They’ve formed an action group and are calling for the once bustling international terminal to be brought back to life. 

Also in today’s podcast, a Kent mum is pleading with Medway council to move her out of her mould infested flat. 

Her six-year-old son has a severe health condition which she says is being exacerbated by their living conditions. 

The warm weather over the weekend has kept fire crews busy – they’ve been called out to a number of blazes including a house fire in Dover. 

It’s believed sunlight streaming through a glass ornament caused the back decking of the property to catch alight. 

New figures have revealed which part of Kent has had the most new homes built over the past five years.

There have been huge property developments in Maidstone, Dartford and Medway. 

And in sport, Kent’s cricketers are back in action today in their county championship match against Surrey. 

The Spitfires had a strong start yesterday thanks to a century from Joe Cox.
