Scooter riders fall about 20 short of breaking world record

THE Fraser Coast has fallen just short of reclaiming the world record for the longest parade of motorised wheelchairs and scooters.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the group was about 20 people short, with more than 160 people needed to set the record.

Despite that, Cr O'Connell said the event, which was held on the Esplanade, was fun for all involved and showcased the accessibility of the infrastructure of Hervey Bay.
