Scooter mystery

POLICE want help trying to trace the owner of a mobility scooter.

The silver Venus Mobility Scooter is currently in their possession but they have no idea who the current owner could be.

PCSO Mark White said the scooter, which has a black plastic carrier on the front and two wing mirrors and includes a Murgatroyd Mobility sticker, in good condition.

Inquiries have shown that Murgatroyd Mobility of Quay Road, Bridlington, sold it to a Mr Hacker in 2010. Sadly, he is no longer alive and attempts to contact anyone at his last known address have failed.

“If anyone has a scooter fitting this description which they may not use on a day to day basis I was ask them to check it is safe, in a shed or similar place. If it is missing then get in touch,” said PCSO White.

He would also like to hear from any relatives or friends of Mr Hacker who may know what happened to his mobility scooter.

He can be contacted at Bridlington Police Station by calling 0845 6060222.
