A TOP freestyle scooter rider visited Barrow today.
People had a chance to meet Ryan Williams at Kates Skates in Dalkeith Street, Barrow.
The Australian, 19, was in the town as part of a deal with scooter company Madd Gear, for which Kates Skates is a supplier.
General manager Lorraine Smith said Mr Williams is a huge name in the scooter world and kids had been delighted when they were told he was coming.
Prior to his visit she said: “One lad, about 10, said ‘I can’t believe it, you’re lying’. There’s quite a big scooter fraternity of kids who scooter locally and we wanted to do something like this to get them more involved with the shop.
“He’s a big name, like a Wayne Rooney to scootering, and the kids are really excited.”
