A 20 year-old woman has been questioned by police after the car she was driving careered into an Indian restaurant in March on Sunday morning.
Police were called shortly before 6.30am after a Ford Fiesta crashed into the Shah Jahan restaurant on the corner of Dartford Road.
No one was injured but both the car and the window of the restaurant were extensively damaged.
Police said today that the woman had been interviewed and reported for driving taking a vehicle without consent, driving with no insurance, no licence and for criminal damage.
A passenger in the Fiesta has been spoken to but not arrested.
The restaurant was forced to close during the day but by evening the window had been temporarily repaired and was able to re-open for business.
Support for the restaurant owners has begun through a local Facebook community group from many regular customers.

He added: “It is definitely business as normal at the restaurant.”
