Scaled-down scooter rally took place in Cleethorpes at the weekend

Following the cancellation of the annual scooter rally due to Covid-19 restrictions, riders on Vespa and Lambretta scooters still flocked to Cleethorpes at the weekend in their hundreds.

The event was set to take place from Friday 9 July until Sunday 11 July, but was cancelled following a rise in Covid-19 cases across the country amid a surge in the Delta variant of the virus.

In response, many riders from up and down the country decided to travel to Cleethorpes to take part in a scaled-down version of the popular event, making the most of the weather and hotel and B&B bookings in the area.

A local resident commented: “I saw loads of them enjoying themselves. It was great to see!”
