Nicole Kidman called police after being knocked over by a photographer on a bike in New York.

Witnesses told TMZ that the pap was cycling on the pavement and appeared to hit his brakes but still slammed into the 46-year-old star.

A furious Nicole - who lost a shoe in the incident - was helped up by staff who then called the police.

The photographer was given a ticket for cycling on the pavement but was not arrested.

One cop told TMZ: "An accident's an accident."
