The Guardia Civil were scrambled on Thursday morning after reports of an electric mobility scooter travelling at just 10 km/h along the busy A-7 motorway on Mijas Costa at breakfast time.

A passer-by recorded the man, who was travelling towards Marbella, while numerous people phoned to alert the police.

Eventually, some time later, the man was tracked down in the Benalmádena area but no arrest was made as he was by then on the pavement again, as the highway regulations dictate.
