Jeremy Vine angers fellow cyclists in apparent near-miss

Updated: 


Broadcaster Jeremy Vine has been criticised on social media after posting a video of a driver turning out of a junction dangerously.

The post included the caption: "On another day, he would have killed me", as the clip shows a red Peugeot 406 turn in front of Vine while he was riding his bicycle to work through central London.

Some of the commenters of the video were less than convinced by Vine's argument however, with Tony Corner saying: "Cyclist doesn't seem to slow down, means the car had time to do the manoeuvre, and did it without causing any problems. What is the actual problem here? Another stupid boring head cam video to slag other drivers off."

Geoff Fawcett also commented: "Who died? Who was seriously injured? Who was slightly injured? Who had to take evasive action? Who was even in the slightest bit inconvenienced? Absolutely no-one. For heaven's sake man, get a grip."

Others supported Vine's video though, with Lynne Blair writing: "You are SO brave cycling in London!"

The BBC Radio 2 presenter has been known to post videos of poor driving he has seen while commuting around central London.
