The cyclist knocked down by a motorist who then tweeted about it, has welcomed an apology from her.

Trainee chef Toby Hockley was taking part in a cycling event in Norfolk on Sunday when the incident happened.

He came off his bike after colliding with the car, but was able to carry on with the event and didn't bother reporting what had happened.

'Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier - I have right of way he doesn't even pay road tax! #bloody cyclists.'

– The tweet from Emma Way

He contacted the police, who are now investigating. Emma Way has been suspended from her job with accountants Larking Gowen. Toby Hockley told ITV News Anglia he welcomed her apology.

"Well I'm glad she's remorseful. I would very much liked her to stop after any sort of collission to make sure the person was all right . If she proclaimed she didn't really see me I could have been a child. I could have been a walker - anyone. That's all the more reason to stop and check . I'm sorry she's in trouble with her employers and I feel very bad for her employers that have done a lot of good for sport in Norwich and I hope their image hasn't been tarnished out of all this."
