A 78-year-old “daredevil” is off-roading – using her “Harley Davidson” mobility scooter.

Sue Raymond, from Pulborough, has signed up with the charity Disabled Ramblers and rides a black and chrome trike.

The retired milkmaid flies a skull and crossbones from her scooter, nicknamed “Darley”, and has been climbing every mountain and fording every stream as she has taken to rugged land in Cumbria, the New Forest and the Lake District.

She said: “We go everywhere, uphill and down dale, in mud and on stony ground, he has never let me down. People admiring my trusty steed are always stopping me.

“On one occasion I had my picture taken in the Lake District by a couple that said they had never seen an electric scooter so high up in the Fells.”

She added: “Ben Nevis, here we come.”

Darley, a TGA Supersport Mobility Scooter, has even made it onto shingle beaches as Ms Raymond sits at the wheel doing skids and doughnuts.
