You may be forgiven for thinking the roads policing unit only care about speeding, uninsured or stolen cars.

But when the Beds, Cambs & Herts crew came across pensioner David pushing his mobility scooter this morning (Monday), they simply had to step in.

The 86-year-old had a blowout on the footpath and had been pushing the scooter for several miles.

The unit recovered it and reliably inform us David is now enjoying a cup of tea.
