The driver who repeatedly called a cyclist a "c***" in a three-minute road rage video has apologised for his actions.
Jason Wells, owner of a chain of high-end London cafes, was filmed threatening to “f*cking kill” the cyclist, when they were involved in an row about cycle lane use on Priory Lane in Richmond.
On Tuesday Wells said: “I would like to apologise for any offence caused. My behaviour was unacceptable and regardless of the situation, I shouldn’t react like that."
“I fully appreciate that cyclists have as much right to the road as any other road users," he added.
This sudden turn of good will comes after cyclists took to Twitter to vow to avoid Wells' cafes under the hashtag #BoycottBrew. The cafes in South London have held events for bike-riders in the past.
Following the incident, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said that a 50-year-old man, believed to be Wells, had "voluntarily attended a south London police station where he was interviewed in connection with the incident, but the man was not arrested."
The Evening Standard reported that there were three cards parked outside Wells house, including the Land Rover involved in the incident, and also a bicycle.
