An unlucky mum fell back first off a hoverboard.

While Terri Simpson watched on at home in Colchester, Essex, on March 21, her mum Lorna Smith climbed on top of the dual-wheeled device with the help of a friend.

As soon as the other woman lets go of her, Lorna started to lose balance and toppled backwards crashing to the floor.

Terri said: “Fortunately, mum was alright.

“I know it’s naughty, but I couldn’t help but laugh.”
