Can you help officers?
Police are appealing for witnesses after the death of a pensioner who was found near a footbridge by the M20 in Aylesford.
Derek Gane, 69, was found at 10.38 am on August 14 by a member of the public next to the bridge that crosses the motorway from Teapot Lane to Aylesford railway station.
He was taken to a local hospital by South East Coast Ambulance Service with life threatening injuries and was subsequently transferred to a London hospital where he died on August 17.
Officers investigating the circumstances surrounding his death have released a photograph of Mr Gane and also a CCTV image that shows him prior to being found injured wearing a grey t-shirt, blue jeans and brown boots.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who saw Mr Gane on the morning of August 14 walking along Teapot Lane, over the M20 footbridge or in Station Road where he was found injured.
