The wife of a man who died after falling off an electric skateboard hopes his death will make people “more aware of the laws and the risks” when using them.

Bradley Visser, 38, died 10 days after he crashed in Stoke Row, near Henley-on-Thames, last July.

Oxford Coroner’s Court heard the South African national lost control while travelling at about 20mph (32km/h).

Annabel Visser said he had not known the laws around using the board.

At the inquest into his death, assistant coroner Peter Clark said using it on a public road was illegal, and recorded a verdict of misadventure.
