“I was shocked to see it which is why I shared it [online]. I was horrified at the thought of what may happen to the baby if he was to be in an accident on the scooter,” she said.

A Zipp Mobility spokesman said: “All of our scooters are GPS-tracked and we are using this information to investigate this further.

“We are currently investigating this incident and working with the relevant authorities.

“We actively discourage unsafe riding and we encourage anyone who witnesses misuse of our scooters to report it to us at info@zippmobility.com.”

Cllr Steven Broadbent, Cabinet Member for Transport, added: “Safety is our number one priority with our e-scooter trials and it’s vital that anyone riding an e-scooter follows the rules and rides safely.

“E-scooters are built for one rider only, so no additional passengers are permitted by law.

“Zipp Mobility have confirmed they will be banning this particular rider from using them again.”
