Police seek owner of stolen mobility scooter

Police are trying to reunite a stolen mobility scooter that was taken for a joyride with its rightful owner.

The scooter was discovered when a 37-year-old man was trying to drive it around College Street, Brighton, on Saturday, October 8, but no one has reported the scooter stolen.

The man was arrested on suspicion of theft and has been bailed until next Tuesday pending further inquiries.

Anyone who knows the scooter’s owner should contact 101, quoting serial 0390 of 20/10.

Basic grammer...

"Police are trying to reunite a stolen mobility scooter that was taken for a joyride with its rightful owner," implies the owner was on the joyride too.

"Police are trying to reunite a stolen mobility scooter, that was taken for a joyride, with its rightful owner," implies it was stolen without the owner.

Do I really have to do you jobs for you?!

It's because there is nobody at the Argus capable of properly proof reading what is published.

"basic grammer" ??! try "basic grammar"

Do I really have to do a spell check for you. (those in glass-houses...)

Also, the sentence quoted in your comment should probably just be rewritten as:

"Police are trying to reunite a stolen mobility scooter with its rightful owner after it was taken for a joyride."

Arguments about spelling and grammar aside, these things are a menace- one less coffin dodger speeding down the pavement without any regard for the safety of others is a positive thing in my opinion. Lets hope it never gets reunited with its owner.

Dear Argus

Can you put the colour and type of scooter, ie the make?

This will save people going to their elderly relatives to check up if this is theirs or not.

It's not just the Argus, half the population can't write properly these days. I blame it on computers and mobile phones.
You'd think being very good at written English would be a requirement for being a journalist. Seems not. Perhaps they are recruited for their investigative skills rather than their writing skills. If so, they should employ a proof reader to check every piece for errors before it is published.
I'd like to see The Argus journalists hold an open day in Brighton so the readers can meet the people who bring us the news and put faces to the names.
