A person has been seen towing a boat behind an electric mobility scooter through a seaside town in England.

The unusual incident was captured by Nigel Swinburne, a plasterer from Hartlepool, who could not believe his eyes as the person drove past him.

The scooter has a trailer attached to the back of it and a boat on top of the trailer.

Mr Swinburne, who was working on the outside of a house on Sheriff Street at the time, said: "I thought there's a boat coming towards me and then 'oh it's being towed by a mobility scooter'.

"Obviously, I was a bit shocked, that's why I only got the picture when it had passed me. The person didn't seem that old."

Other pictures of the strange event have also appeared on Facebook, as well as a video of the person towing the trailer without the boat in it.

When asked, Cleveland Police said it was legal for the boat to be towed by the scooter.
