A cyclist has told press of his ordeal where he was chased by a driver and then rammed from behind, leaving him holding on to the car bonnet for his life.

The 32 year old was on his way to work when he made an innocent gesture to the driver following an incident which forced him to stop abruptly.

However, instead of apologising, the driver of the vehicle chased the cyclists and minutes later rammed in to the back of him before speeding off.

“I must have got three-quarters of the way up a road when I realised there was a car right behind me. He’d obviously waited for me to turn around, had this grin on his face, and just drove into the back of my bike at speed, buckling the wheel,” said Mr Thompson.

The cyclist was knocked on to the bonnet where he clung on for fear of losing his life.

“I didn’t want to let go in case I went under the wheels, so I hung on and hoped he would just stop. He must have been doing 20mph-30mph.”

“I didn’t want to end up under his wheels so I pushed myself off the car and rolled down the road.”

Luckily he escaped with only cuts and bruises.

Police are now scanning CCTV footage to try and find the offending vehicle.
