Video: Cyclist appeals for help to track down hit and run driver

Newspapers ask whether driver or cyclist was at fault

A London cyclist has posted a video to Twitter and appealed for help after being involved in a collision at a junction. Twitter user BrokenLegs says that the driver involved failed to stop and has asked for help identifying them.

In the helmet cam footage, the cyclist is approaching a side road when a Volkswagen Polo coming from the opposite direction turns across his path.

Cars travelling in the same direction as the cyclist partly obscure the car until it is too late. He collides with the side of it and we see the bike fly into the air as he falls.

There are a few groans and it is a good few seconds before the cyclist starts to pick himself up.

Both The Sun and The Mail have run the video asking which party was in the wrong.

There has also been a lively response to the video on Twitter with some users questioning whether the rider should have been cycling more cautiously in the circumstances.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
