Users of mobility scooters in the District are being reminded that they can have them tested for safety next month.

Free electric checks are being carried out in Witney on 4 October and Chipping Norton  on 18 October.

Cllr Toby Morris, Cabinet Member for Health and Safety at West Oxfordshire District Council, said: “Through our Shopmobility service we know how important mobility scooters are for our residents to allow them to get out of the house and enjoy activities such as shopping and visiting friends.

“As a result it is vital that scooters are well maintained and these free checks will help ensure their machines are fit for purpose.”
