World News

TWO women who decided to try an e-scooter on a night out had a painful experience.

The pair were caught on camera losing control and smashing into a wall, ending up in a heap on the floor.

Jenni Morley had been out with four friends to celebrate one of their birthdays when they were offered a rented scooter by a passerby at around 9pm.

Jenni and a friend (who didn't want to be named) climbed on to give the e-scooter a spin, but it all went very wrong very quickly.

They then fly across the pavement and smash into a wall sending both of them tumbling to the floor.

Jenni, from Nottingham, said: "We're always having a laugh every time we get together.

"We'd gone out into town for a birthday celebration to do an escape room.

"We were going back to the train and one of the girls had a go on the scooter. I said 'I'll get on with you then' as a laugh.

"We ended up crashing into the wall. I'd only ever been on one of the scooters in Lanzarote. They're fast."

Neither woman was injured in the crash, despite neither wearing a helmet.

E-scooters remain illegal if bought privately and used on the public road or pavement.

However, the e-scooter the two women were riding is legal as it's owned by a licenced hire company.
