A pensioner’s been left with a suspected broken leg, after being hit by a mobility scooter in Eastbourne.

The 69-year-old from Battle was struck by a red scooter near Tesco in Lottbridge Drove at around 2.30pm on Monday 17 April. He was taken to Eastbourne DGH where he was also looked at for suspected torn ligaments in his other leg.

The scooter rider, who is described as being a white man, about 70-years-old, with grey hair, of heavy build with tattoos on his knuckles, left the scene after leaving what are believed to be false details.

PC Nathan Langley, of the Polegate Road Policing Unit, said, "The victim suffered serious injuries from which it will take some time to recover.

"We're keen to speak to anyone who can help identify the scooter rider, as it is believed he gave a false name before leaving the scene."

Anyone who saw what happened or who may have other information is asked to contact Sussex Police online, email, or telephone 101, quoting serial 663 of 17/04.
