Costa coffee crash: One dead, five injured, as car hits Kent cafe

One person died and five were injured when a car ploughed into a coffee shop in Kent.

The casualty was declared dead at the scene after the Audi crashed into Costa on The Green, Westerham, at 10:30 GMT.

South East Coast Ambulance (Secamb) said five more people were taken to hospital, four with serious injuries and one with minor injuries.

The centre of Westerham has been closed while emergency services remain at the scene.

Eyewitness Peter Thornley tweeted: “Someone has just driven a car straight into Costa Coffee in Westerham. Madness.”

‘People in shock’

Sally Pendleton, who is visiting Westerham for Christmas, arrived at the scene five minutes after the crash.

She said the car had gone through a plate glass window.

“We walked past and saw a car had just been lodged straight inside Costa Coffee,” she said.

“There was a man still in the car and probably about 12 people by the side of the Costa looking very much in shock.

“It’s a horrible thing to have happened, on Christmas Eve of all days.

“Westerham is quite a quiet, sleepy area usually.”

Police have set up a witness centre at The Chequers public house in Westerham High Street.
