Scottish grandmother whizzes round skate park on mobility scooter

A rebellious grandmother left her house for the first time in three months and headed straight to a skate park to hit the ramps on her mobility scooter. 

Amy Penman posted a sweet video of her grandmother celebrating her first trip out of the house in Broxburn, Scotland, zooming over the ramps. 

She can be seen cheering 'wee' and laughing while wearing a face mask as she put her skating skills to the test on Tuesday.

Amy Penman's grandmother went to the skate park for her first trip out of her house after not leaving the house for close to four months

Her granddaughter shared the video on Twitter and jokingly said her grandmother 'has lost the plot'. 

As of Monday everyone in England and Wales has been allowed to leave their homes as long as they maintain strict social distancing rules. 

However, in Scotland, lockdown rules are still in place for vulnerable people. 

Miss Penman  said: 'It was her first time out in four months, as she had to self-isolate because she has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with an oxygen tank on the back of her scooter.'
