Anti-cyclist tweeter subject of 'malicious threats'

A young woman who boasted on Twitter about clipping a cyclist while driving her car has told Daybreak that she has since been the subject of "malicious threats".

Emma Way, 22, lost her job after tweeting: "Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier. I have right of way - he doesn't even pay road tax! #bloodycyclists"

Ms Way was acquitted of driving without due care and attention and has apologised for her "spur of the moment" and "stupid" tweet.
