Three Finsbury Park men have died in an early morning crash in Kent.

The men, all in their 30s, were pronounced dead at the scene after their black Mercedes hit a parked lorry at 4.30am yesterday.

Kent police are appealing for witnesses to the crash, which happened on the A2 near Dunkirk, a village not far from Canterbury.

The men’s next of kin have been told.

A fourth man who was in the car, from Enfield and in his 20s, was taken to a London hospital with serious injuries.

The lorry driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by reckless or dangerous driving and has been released pending enquiries.

Officers from the serious collision investigation unit want to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or people who have dashcam footage which may help.

Anyone with information can call 01622 798538 quoting reference SCIU/DM/008/18.
