The rider quickly hopped back on the e-Scooter before scooting away.

Other people nearby rushed to help the elderly lady to her feet.

Police said they are aware of the mobile phone video but said no victims have so far come forward to the force to report a crime.

A witness told the Standard: “The guy on the scooter knocked the old lady down as she walked on a pedestrian crossing.

“She was in shock and couldn’t speak. She was bleeding from the mouth and had tarmac rush on her face.”

A Met spokesman said: “We are aware of the video and are assessing its contents. We ask anyone who has been a victim or anyone with information to call police on 101 ref 6121/29oct or tweet @MetCC.”
