Danni was exiting a newsagent close to her home in Battersea, London, when she was suddenly flung off the pavement by the out of control moped, which had been left by its owner who was delivering a package nearby.

After being taken to hospital by an ambulance, Danni has since been recovering at home – but the incident has left her with post-traumatic stress disorder and post traumatic vertigo, which is dizziness a patient suffers following a head injury.

A source close to Danni told MailOnline: ‘She’s had a truly horrible experience. No one expects to be knocked unconscious while shopping at their local newsagent and the accident has left Danni in shock and fearful to leave the house.

‘She’s taking time at home and her mum is by her side – but it’s been a scary ordeal.

‘All she hopes now is to regain her confidence, take time offline to recover, and for her facial wounds to completely heal.’

‘It’s not looking pretty’: Danni told her Instagram followers she had been involved in an accident and would be taking time away from social media to recover 

A spokesperson for Danni told MailOnline: ‘Danni was hit by a stolen moped that got out of control. She was knocked unconscious and suffered significant facial wounds. She is recuperating at home and resting until the concussion subsides.’

Danni also told her Instagram followers she had been involved in an accident and would be taking time away from social media to recover.

She said alongside a black and white image of the moped: ‘So, on Saturday I was taken out (on the pavement!) by a stolen moped that lost control.

‘Didn’t see it coming and it’s not looking pretty right now to be honest. I’m sure I will be fine in a few weeks but in the meantime, I might be a wee bit quiet on here.’
