Action urged by MPs on mobility scooters

MPs are calling on the government to tighten regulations on mobility scooters and consider a fit-to-drive test following a number of accidents.

Thousands of elderly and disabled people rely on mobility scooters to get around, but there are no set rules on who is fit to use one and no-one knows exactly how many accidents there have been involving them.

Tim Muffett reports.
