Two men facing trial over an armed robbery at a building society in which a man was shot dead by police have been charged with more armed raids in Kent.

Dean Jenkins, 39, of Rainham, and Ben Grehan, 22, of Upper Norwood, south London, are now facing charges over raids in Herne Bay and Paddock Wood.

An inquiry by the Independent Police Complaints Commission is under way over the shooting at the raid in New Romney.

One of the officers who shot Robert Haines, 41, a father-of-three from Ashford, was also involved in the Jean Charles de Menezes shooting at Stockwell in July 2005.

The Brazilian, 27, was shot after police mistook him for a suicide bomber on a London Tube train on 22 July 2005.

Four more raids

Three men are facing trial over the New Romney Raid - the third is David Jenkins, 60, of Pantheon Gardens, Ashford, father of Dean Jenkins.

All three are due to enter pleas at Maidstone Crown Court on Monday.

They are all charged with robbery and possessing a firearm at the Nationwide Building Society in New Romney, on 31 October.

Company director Dean Jenkins, of Wilks Close, and scaffolder Ben Grehan, 22, of Vermont Road, are now both also charged with conspiracy to rob and possession of a sawn-off shotgun in raids in Herne Bay on 24 August, and in Paddock Wood on 4 October.

All the alleged raids were at building society branches.
