Podcast: Residents welcome plans for a new nightclub underneath Ashford Travelodge

Plans for a new nightclub in Ashford have been welcomed by residents who say it could bring much-needed footfall and variety to their town.

If approved it would only be 400 metres from the town’s only other club Cameo. 

Also in today’s podcast, a married couple “got the wrong” end of the stick when they launched a violent attack on a man they believed to have used a homophobic slur. 

The pair lashed out outside a pub in Canterbury and left their victim with a fractured jaw. 

Some sad news, with a man found dead in a vehicle parked behind a Co-op in Northfleet. 

A witness has described how the car park behind the supermarket was taped off in the aftermath, with a large number of police and forensic cars at the scene.

A Kent village is about to get  its first fish and chip shop in decades and residents say it’s “quite exciting”.

It’s set to open in Newington High Street on the site of a former pub. 

And hear from Gillingham boss Stephen Clemence as he looks forward to his first January transfer window. 

He also says he’s not getting distracted by the FA Cup campaign.
