A mobility scooter driver was "obviously dangerous" to himself and other road users after going through no entry signs and driving on the wrong side of the Tamar Bridge earlier this week, bridge managers say.
The man, thought to be in his mid-80s, was pulled over by police after driving the scooter on the bridge at about 17:15 on Monday. Cars were reported to be swerving around the scooter. No arrest was made and no one was injured.
Tamar Crossing general manager David List said: "He came the wrong way down a slip road in the rush hour, down through two no entry signs, and went against red crosses on the road [denoting which direction that lane was being used for].
"He eventually crossed over to the right side of the road. and ended up on the A38. It was an obviously dangerous manoeuvre, not just for him, but also for other roads users, who had to take evasive action."
Fairground sex warning evidence 'largely anecdotal'
Lynne French, BBC News Online
Police have admitted information that led them to produce a newsletter claiming children could be "vulnerable to exploitation" by fairground workers is "largely anecdotal".
The letter, sent to Plympton residents by Devon and Cornwall Police, said perpetrators could come into contact with young females at fairs. It has since been withdrawn. One funfair operator said the comments were "incredibly unfair".
Devon and Cornwall Police said: “Fun fairs and other large social gatherings of young people have historically led to some intelligence suggesting those attending may be at risk of exploitation. This intelligence is largely anecdotal and the message is general safety advice for parents and those young people attending such events."

Bishop tells church leaders and congregations to 'remain alert, not alarmed'
The Bishop of Truro has told church leaders and their congregations "to remain alert, not alarmed" after the murder of a Catholic priest in France killed while conducting morning mass in his church.
Writing in a pastoral letter, the Right Reverend Tim Thornton, said the Anglican Church condemned violence "wherever it happens and the wicked nature of this latest atrocity is shocking". He said: "At this time we need to ensure we continue to extend hospitality to others and to work hard to ensure we listen to all members of our community."
He also said that there was "no current intelligence to suggest any attack was being planned of this nature in this country". But he added: "It makes sense for all church leaders to review their security plans and to encourage their flock to be vigilant. Any suspicious behaviour should be reported immediately".
A Cornwall councillor has written an open letter to the Highways Department at Cornwall Council, asking it to sort out problems at Lelant in St Ives.

Eco-community planning permission 'sends out a message'
BBC Radio Devon
An eco-community in Devon getting planning permission to live there permanently "sends out a message", one of its members says.
Originally there were strong objections to the Landmatters community near Totnes, where people live in dwellings such as yurts, grow their own food and generate their own power.
It has got permanent permission to be there after a 13-year legal battle after the community was initially refused retrospective planning permission. About 250 people live there.
Simeon Warbuton, who lives there with his family, said: "I think it sends out a message that this way of life is successful, sustainable, part of the society in which we live, and which will become a more important part of our future."

A controversial plan to build a student block on the Ocean Bowl site in Falmouth is under review after it's thought an underground Victorian bunker has been found at the site.
There's currently a planning application for a five-storey student residence attached to a seven-storey tower block at the site. Campaigners argue that the town isn't equipped to deal with more students.
In a statement, Historic England said the building would not be suggested for listing as it appeared to have been built in the 20th Century. But, it added that it did have concerns about the development as the proposed residences did not suit the character of the town.
