13 Injured As Man Drives Car Into Nightclub

At least 13 people were injured after a man drove a car into a busy nightclub in Kent, England. Police were called at 23:47 GMT on Saturday after a Suzuki Vitara drove into Blake’s in Gravesend, Kent.

It is believed the driver had been asked to leave the club in Queen Street after an earlier altercation.

A 21-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Kent Police said several of those hurt have suffered broken bones.

As well as the 13 confirmed injured, officers believe several others may have left the scene.
Seven people were taken to hospital, four with minor injuries and three with serious but not life-threatening injuries, the ambulance service added.

Police said the driver of the vehicle suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution but is currently in custody.

Det Ch Insp David Chewter said: “This was a frightening experience for everyone involved and it is a miracle that nobody was killed.”
Witnesses said a 4×4 had been driven into a tented area full of people.

Chloe Germaney, 18, said she heard a “massive bang” before seeing the 4×4 “driving into the club through the gates into the lounge, running people over”.
