Two electric scooters have been seized by gardaí in Co Donegal after people were seen using them on footpaths in Buncrana.

The e-scooters were seized on Sunday night.

In a statement, An Garda Síochána said that e-scooters are defined as mechanically propelled vehicles and as such must be roadworthy.

Users must also have insurance, motor tax and a driving licence.

Gardaí said that as it is currently not possible to tax or insure e-scooters or electric skateboards, they are not considered suitable for use in a public place.
