A Wimbledon cyclist has captured the moment he was nearly struck down by a "dangerous" driver.

IT consultant Dave Clifton's video starts with the driver of a black Audi A3 yelling while stopped at traffic lights near Clapham North station.

He then swerves into a bus lane, nearly striking the cyclist for the first time.

Stopped at a further set of lights, the driver repeatedly throws debris from his car at the cyclist while hurling obscenities.

"When the lights turned green, the driver turned his car towards the victim and drove at him at speed before changing direction," police said.

The Audi takes a left onto a side-street where a witness said he nearly hit another cyclist, according to police.

A large group of bikers stop and the driver turns around, mounts the pavement and drives towards them.

"It's a stolen car," the driver says as they threaten to call the police.

An officer in an un-marked car turns up to cheers, but the driver reverses down Dorset Road at speed.

"It's worrying having drivers on the road like that, certainly," Mr Clifton said.

"It's all just really bizarre. I don't know if he's just having a bad morning or what. He seems to be picking on everybody."

Police are appealing for help hunting the "reckless" driver.

Det Con Preston said: "We are still trying to trace him and urge anyone who recognises him to contact the police as soon as possible.

"The sooner you call us, the sooner we can take this dangerous driver off the road."

The incident happened on Wednesday, August 1 at about 8am. Witnesses should contact 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
