An electric skateboard was captured skating through the Limehouse Link Tunnel in London.


The tunnel is one of the capital's busiest A-roads and excludes cyclists and pedestrians from entering the tight road in East London.

The footage posted on Twitter shows a man skating on the inside lane wearing a backpack heading east.


Electric skateboards and scooters have become increasing popular on UK roads despite them remaining illegal.


Transport for London (TfL) chief Mike Brown called for a review of the safety of electric scooters on public roads, citing the inevitability of them becoming legal. In an interview with the Evening Standard, he expressed concern that e-scooter riders could present a danger to both the public and themselves.


Video footage does contain some strong language.
