Police are appealing for help to identify a mobility scooter user who caused actual bodily harm to an elderly woman in Lowestoft.

The incident occurred between 11.30am and noon at the Marks and Spencer store on London Road North, on Friday, September 1.

A woman, aged in her late 80s, was queuing in the store when she was caught by a mobility scooter.

This caused her to fall to the floor and resulted in a nasty cut to her leg.

The woman driving the scooter showed no remorse and failed to apologise.

Officers would like to speak to the woman depicted in the CCTV image in connection with the incident.

Anyone who recognises the woman should contact PC Kevin Brooks at Lowestoft Police on 101.
