Podcast: Sadness as JC Rook & Sons butchers close shops in Kent after going into administration

One of Kent’s oldest and biggest butchery firms has gone into administration.

JC Rook & Sons has 11 stores in the county but none of them are open today after managers were told of the news last night.

We have reaction from our business editor Chris Britcher and we’ve also been speaking to another butcher based in Deal.

Also in today’s podcast, a Kent woman who’s been a victim of cyberflashing has welcomed the news it’s going to become a criminal offence.

It’s when offenders send inappropriate images to people online without consent – often targeting victims via their email or social media.

We’ve been hearing how schools across Kent are joining forces to help with the aid effort in Ukraine.

The CEO of Our Community Multi Academy Trust has been speaking about getting collections of clothes to the border.

It’s dog theft awareness day and we’ve been speaking to a woman whose pet was stolen from her van as it was parked at Bluewater.

She’s thankfully now been reunited with her pet but has described what it was like to have him taken.

And the Gillingham manager has reacted to their huge win at the weekend.

The 1-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers means the Gills are now only in the league one relegation zone on goal difference.
