He might be 91, but life in the fast lane still has its fascination for Stanley Murphy.

The retired builder's electric mobility scooter ended up on one of the busiest roads in the country after he took a wrong turn on his way home from buying his morning newspaper.

Shocked drivers spotted him trundling along at 3mph while cars and lorries sped past at up to 70mph on the six-lane A27 at Shoreham, West Sussex.

When they buy these things - don't they warn them not to go on roads - considering they aren't taxed or insured...
Then again - they're just as hazardous on pavements...
