Sussex van driver filmed forcing cyclist off road denies dangerous driving

Driver is reported to have had his employment terminated by firm that owns van

A Sussex van driver who was filmed forcing a cyclist off the road has denied dangerous driving. Ben Salisbury is accused of deliberately swerving into the path of the cyclist as he passed him on the A272 at Cowfold on April 30.

The footage was shot by a second cyclist's body-worn camera. After it came to prominence online, Salisbury’s employment was terminated by the managing director of the company the van belonged to.

The Argus reports that according to the prosecution, one of the cyclists banged on the side of the van as it overtook him and Salisbury swerved deliberately into him, sending him off the road and on to a grass verge.

The trial will be held at Horsham Magistrates' Court on October 3.
