“This was a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the man’s family at this extremely difficult time.

“We are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward. If you saw what happened and have yet to get in contact with us, please do not assume that others have already told us what you saw.

“We are working to build up a complete picture of what happened. Whilst we do not believe the e-scooter was involved in a collision with another vehicle, we are keen to review any dashcam footage recorded by passing vehicles around the time of the incident. 

“I would also like to thank the members of the public who came to the injured man’s aid and stayed with him until emergency services arrived. This was a distressing incident for everyone involved and they acquitted themselves admirably in a difficult situation.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting incident 641 of 23 May 2024.
