On June 14, cyclist Patrick Knetemann was riding on Langley Park Road when a Volkswagen car pulled across the road and hit him, as captured in this helmet cam video:
Knetemann said police officers had told him the number plates on the car that hit him were false.
He told ITV: "He came out of nowhere. The impact was so quick I had no time to stop.
"I hit the windscreen with my shoulder and it shattered straight away - that shows how fast and hard he hit me.
"I think he was turning right to go into the Kwik Fit garage and didn't see me.
"But I had a light on my bike, and I was wearing a bright red helmet.
"After one or two seconds he sped off leaving my there on the pavement."

Maybe we need to take a note out of the drivists playbook and label the lack of secure bike storage as discriminatory against the disabled
Well, I passed this lot yesterday and they seemed to be enjoying the ride... (apparently it was the national chopper convention or something!).
