Out the other day-
Car pulls across my path entrance to cycle path.
Stops abruptly so I cannot proceed safely.
I tap on rear window.
All hell breaks lose.
Driver gets out swearing cussing...........I own the land adjacent been in family for 300 years etc, etc etc.
Refuses to move.
I turn around and cycle back a minute later.
No intention of moving.
I pass as safe as I can on right.
Car chases me revving engine down cycle path (also a dead end road and bridle path)
I get off bike.
Driver grabs my bike and tosses it into hedge.
Then chasses me down the path.
More cussing insults swearing.
Punches and kicks thrown by them.
I get back to my bike and driver gets in car and drives at me on foot making contact twice.
I phone 999.
I walk away with bike down path.
Car follows me dispite I am on phone to police, and I told them.
They shout down phone at police.
I leave, get crime number........................phone 101...........that's it.
Blood on my leg at home from kick.
Ex copper persuades me to phone 101.
I have full video evidence without sound unfortuanately.
We will see, I filled in form online after failing to get through / put on hold etc etc.
I won't hold my breath.viewtopic.php?f=15&t=124395"Postby NATURAL ANKLING » 22 Aug 2018, 9:15pm
My er indoors told me a story the other day.
Er sister was coming home from holiday and broke down in car less than 10 miles from home.
They limped into a mc douguls car park late in evening.
Were spotted by a police car and rather than wait for breakdown.......wouldn't be too long would it...........the police suggested that they mark the car with police tape..................then gave them a lift home about 10 miles plus getting back on duty I suppose.
Its not the first time police have gone the extra mile for someone in distress on these posts
D&C chief was on tv a few days ago talking about over stretched and lack of money etc.........................."
