A cyclist who appeared to try to get intentionally run over in Nottingham received a very British response.

Dash-cam footage from April 2 shows a man on a mountain bike in the middle of a poorly-lit road in the English city.

As the car approaches, he throws himself to the ground and clutches his head as if in pain.

The driver of the vehicle steps out and says: “Excuse me, we’ve got a dash cam, so you might want to get going.”

The irate cyclist then appears to get angry and yells at someone on the side of the road, apparently an accomplice.

Newsflare member Dave Reeves, whose daughter owns the vehicle and was driving at the time, said: “We're assuming that it was going to be an insurance scam of some sort.”
