UPDATE: Police Investigate Cycle Rage Video Of Jeremy Vine Being ‘Kicked’ And Threatened By Driver In Central London

Crimewatch presenter Jeremy Vine has posted a frightening video on Facebook showing a disturbing road rage encounter between himself and a furious driver in central London.

Recorded on front and back cameras mounted on his bicycle helmet, the footage reveals a female motorist launching an astonishing volley of abuse upon the Radio 2 host after he stops in front of her on a narrow street in Kensington.

Leaving her Vauxhall hatchback to confront him, the motorist shrieks: “Why would you stop in front of my car? Do you not respect your fucking life?”

Road rage: The woman was filmed swearing and shouting at the cycling radio presenter.

Vine, 51, replies: “I’ve got to be within a car’s width of the parked cars”, at which point she begins kicking out at him and ordering him to move his bicycle.

After continuing to threaten him, she returns to her car and drives off quickly, just missing another parked car.

Half a minute later, the father-of-two catches up with her at another crossroads and she leaves the car and warns him: “I’m going to knock you out.”

She continues to shout: “If you take a picture of my car I’m going to knock you out because that’s my personal belongings.”

Vine warns her: “Don’t hit me. That would be assault.”

After she returns to her car he claims she formed her hand into the shape of a gun, prompting him to exclaim: “Wow, a gun is not appropriate.”

The Radio 2 presenter posted the footage to Facebook, explaining: “This happened on Friday.

“I hate to overload our hard-working London police with footage from my commute but I feel the person you see on the tape will at some point hurt someone very badly – either with her car or a direct personal assault.

“See what you think.”

It is believed Vine has referred the matter to the police.

Meanwhile, online sleuths have already worked out the woman’s vehicle is not taxed.

The police have been contacted for comment.
