The Chief Superintendent training for a 112km cycling event in which he will raise money for domestic violence when he was hit by a car.

Dispite suffering from a combination of cuts, sprains and grazes, the local policeman said he will not let his injuries put him off taking part.

The 36-year-old said that the charity was too important and therefore he could not consider dropping out of the ride.

“It is one of those charities where just a few pounds will pay for a victim of domestic abuse and her family to be safe for the night.

“Because of my professional experience I can attest to the fact the work of charities like this really does change lives. There are more incidents of domestic abuse than people might think,” he told local press.

Although the off-duty policeman was wearing reflective gear the driver did not notice him and he ended up tumbling over the bonnet and sliding along the road.

The apologetic driver phoned and ambulance and police before helping him repair his bike.
