Three Guilty Over Chatham Kidnap
Three people have been found guilty of kidnap after a woman was bundled into a car in Chatham and subjected to a series of attacks.
The victim had arranged to meet one of her attackers to discuss some money that was owed in April, but when she turned up she was forced into a car and driven to a housing estate in London.
She was then dragged to a secluded park where she was assaulted with a baseball bat, knuckleduster and dog chain.
