Two of our PCSOs came to the rescue of woman whose mobility scooter had broken down in the snow.

PCSO Neil Williams and PCSO Esther Smyth attended the report of the woman and her broken down scooter at the junction of Saundergate Lane on the A16 in Wyberton. This was reported at around midday on February 10.

The woman had become stranded after her mobility scooter’s battery failed while on a trip to the local shop.  The woman, aged in her late 40s, was cold sat in the cold when a passer-by came to her aid. The passer-by, a woman in her 60s, brought the woman a coffee to help keep her warm and contacted the police.

PCSOs’ Williams and Smyth assisted the woman by pushing the scooter, with her sat on it, home.

As the saying goes, not all heroes wear capes. Our officers went beyond the call of duty to ensure this woman made it home safe.

I am very proud of all of officers, it is the little things that often mean a lot.

I would like to say a big thank you to PCSO Williams and PCSO Smyth, and also to the member of the public who contacted us and gave the woman a coffee. This woman was out in freezing cold conditions so we were pleased she made it home safe and sound.
