A motorist has been arrested over the death of a University of Kent worker who was killed after being hit by a car as she delivered Christmas cards.

64 year old Elizabeth Tanner had parked her car and got out to make her deliveries when she was struck by a passing Vauxhall Corsa.

A woman aged 20 from Canterbury was arrested later that day on suspicion of causing death by dangerous or reckless driving.

She has been released on bail pending further inquiries over the death of Mrs Tanner, who worked as a master's assistant at the University of Kent.
