It might look like your standard mobility scooter, designed to help the elderly and the infirm do their shopping. But this particular version has had rather a substantial upgrade.

Plumber Colin Furze, 31, spent nearly three months converting the machine so that it now whizzes along at an incredible 69mph – making it the world’s fastest mobility scooter.

It has a powerful 125cc motorbike engine hidden under the seat, five gears and twin exhausts.

Might be good for getting to work?
