A drunk pensioner accused of colliding with a child on his mobility scooter has been released with no further action to be taken.
Police were called to an area of Market Place at around 6.45pm on Saturday, November 5, after receiving reports a 76-year-old man driving a scooter hit a child. The child is not believed to have been hurt in the incident.
After refusing to provide officers with a breath test, the pensioner was alleged to have struck out at a special constable and was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, being unfit to drive through drink or drugs and failure to provide a breath test.
But a Thames Valley Police spokeswoman said the man was told that no further action is to be taken.
