A pensioner on his way to the bank had to be rescued by police after ending up on a busy A-road on his mobility scooter.

Police were inundated with calls about the elderly man trundling along the A27 trunk road near the Shoreham flyover in West Sussex.

A quick-thinking van driver pulled up behind him and followed with hazard lights flashing to alert other motorists until police arrived.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Fortunately, the police vehicle that attended was large enough to load up man and scooter and he was dropped off at his bank with a few words of advice about staying off main roads."
