Trevor Sterling, Chair of the Major Trauma Group said the rolly should “not be expedited” before more action is taken.

He said: “Whilst e-scooter technology is very exciting and will support the UK in our efforts to reduce carbon emissions, the rollout of these vehicles should not be expediated without effective public education while the risk to road users remains so high.

“Without proper understanding of the rules and regulations, e-scooter users risk severely injuring themselves, pedestrians or other road users.

“All serious safety concerns and lack of regulation must be addressed before the Government progresses with any additional trials in order to prevent further accidents.”
