Outrage after a BBC programme on the dangers of uninsured mobility scooters on UK pavements and roads - The Trouble with Mobility Scooters - has prompted a flood of scooter users to belatedly apply for insurance, a specialist disability insurance broker, Fish, has claimed.

John Garrard, managing director of Fish Insurance said: "As soon as we opened the morning after the programme aired we were taking calls from people who had suddenly realised the risk they had been taking by it being uninsured."
