Police appeal after mobility scooter collision

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward following a collision involving a pedestrian and a mobility scooter in Christchurch.

The rider of the scooter did not stop and continued toward Sopers Lane. Following further enquiries, I am now able to release a CCTV image of a lady that we would like to speak with. The picture shows a white woman, about 50-years-old, with long blonde hair, of stocky build, wearing a light coloured jacket. It may be that this lady can help me with my investigation.
