A teen motorist has reportedly lost her job after tweeting that she knocked a cyclist off his bike in Surrey before driving off on Thursday.

Before it was deleted, the account's bio read: "I'm a very silly 18 year old girl that tweets about knocking a cyclist off their bike then driving off."

According to the Evening Standard, the tweets, which have now been deleted, read: "I just knocked a cyclist off his bike with my wing mirror. I was driving like 10mph. I didn't stop because he got upjQuery19106248854908626527_1429873754646"

And another read: "Why do f***ing cyclist [sic] ride in the f***ing road c****?"

The tweeter voluntarily took herself to the police station, and Surrey Roads Police said she has been cautioned.

In a tweet, they also revealed the girl has reportedly lost her job over the incident.

"The driver voluntarily attended Staines Police Station on April 22 and was given words of advice in relation to the incident."
