Woman injured after mobility scooter collision

Police are appealing for witnesses after the rider of a mobility scooter is said to have ridden into a 79-year-old woman in Beverley.

The woman fell at the junction of Champney Road and Lairgate, sustaining minor injuries to her hands and feet. It happened just after midday on Saturday 2 May as crowds gathered to watch the Tour de Yorkshire.

It was a busy time with lots of people on the streets. I believe that other members of the public did try to call the scooter rider to ask them to stop without success. I would appeal to the rider to contact the police at the earliest opportunity and if anyone witnessed the incident they should call us too.
