Residents in Hampshire who use mobility scooters can now claim a free high visibility jacket.

The jackets, which can be claimed from the Help My Mobility group, come as the winter weather brings black ice and poor visibility to roads across the county.

Help My Mobility director Jason Tate explained how important being seen on the road through using the jackets is at this time of year.

He said: “The winter brings with it a whole host of problems for road users. Many mobility scooter users may not realise how vulnerable they can be. Road users need to do all they can to protect their own safety and that of others.
