Furious biker blasts pedestrian after knocking him off his feet

A furious biker appeared to berate a pedestrian after knocking him off his feet at a set of traffic lights in South London. CCTV footage shows the man crossing Malden Road in Sutton. He's then suddenly hit by a bike travelling at speed.

The rider, who was knocked off his bike during the collision, is then seen to get up and angrily berate the stricken pedestrian before getting back on his motorcycle and driving off down Cheam Common Road.

As he makes off, a car which was waiting at traffic lights at Malden Road pursues the motorcycle down Cheam Common Road. Officers are also appealing to the occupants of that car to get in contact with officers as they may be able to assist the investigation.

The pedestrian, aged 53, was taken to a south London hospital for treatment to his injuries - has has since been discharged.

Sir Simon will join the LSO in September 2017 from the Berlin Philharmonic, where he has led the orchestra since 2002.

Last month, Chancellor George Osborne gave his backing to a campaign led by Sir Simon to build a concert hall, and a feasibility study is now under way for the project.

During my work with the LSO over the last years, I noticed that, despite the orchestra's long and illustrious history, they almost never refer to it.

Instead, refreshingly, they talk about the future - what can they make anew, what can they improve, how can they reach further into the community?

In terms of musical excellence, it is clear that the sky's the limit, but equally important, in terms of philosophy, they constantly strive to be a 21st century orchestra. We share a dream in which performing, teaching and learning are indivisible, with wider dissemination of art at our centre. I cannot imagine a better or more inspiring way to spend my next years, and feel immensely fortunate to have the LSO as my musical family and co-conspirators.

Robert McLean Absolutely dreadful service. At my GP you have to call in the morning if you want an appointment and wait for a call back IF they decide it warrants an appointment.

Lena-maria Boar I'd rather suffer than go to the doctors of which I have no idea who I'm seeing to be told one thing and it's another.

Andrew Jarman I use the online booking system if I need to book unless it's really urgent but sadly there are too few slots and a large number of PC illiterate patients who cannot do even this simple task!
