A teenage girl has died after a suspected drink driver rammed his van into a broken down car she was sat in.
Georgia Mann was in the passenger seat of the black Audi A1 Sport on Wednesday when a white Volkswagen Caddy collided with it on a dual carriageway in Kent.
The 15-year-old was rushed to King’s College Hospital in London where doctors desperately tried to save her. Despite their best efforts, she passed away this morning.
