Mobility scooter driver rescued
Tuesday 20 July 2010
A pensioner on his way to the bank on his mobility scooter had to be rescued by police after ending up on a busy A-road.
Officers were inundated with calls about the man trundling along the A27 trunk road near the Shoreham flyover in West Sussex at 10.20am yesterday. A quick-thinking van driver pulled up behind him and followed with hazard lights flashing to alert other motorists until police arrived.
A spokesman for the Sussex force said: "Fortunately, the police vehicle that attended was large enough to load up man and scooter. He was dropped off at his bank with a few words of advice about staying off main roads."
