Watch as footage shows Derby cyclist 'almost dragged under council van' in near-miss
A cyclist has said he could have been knocked off his bike and dragged under a van after a near-miss in Derby - which he caught on camera.
Tim Jowitt was riding along Stores Road last Monday at 8.20am wearing his head-mounted video camera when he heard a vehicle coming up close behind him. But he said, before he knew it, the van had overtaken him and the trailer it was towing came just inches away from his bike in a dramatic few seconds.
