YouTube film shot by Ducati-riding motorcyclist shows him clip cyclist, then berate him
A cyclist was seemingly knocked to the ground by a motorcyclist on The Mall in London, shown in a YouTube film shot by the Ducati-riding motorcyclist using a helmet camera.
The cyclist can be seen riding down the cycle lane, and talking on a mobile phone. The motorcyclist tries to pass between him and a line of cars to his left, and then appears to clip the cyclist’s handlebars, causing him to fall.
The motorcyclist can be heard berating the cyclist for being on the phone and at first blaming him for the incident, before (almost) apologising in the presence of a police officer.
The clip was subsequently removed by the motorcyclist, but not before others had copied the film and posted it elsewhere.
