Police in Oxfordshire are hunting a cyclist who verbally abused a lorry driver after he beeped his horn.

The incident happened on Ducklington Lane in Witney on May the 9th, when the lorry sounded his horn at a fellow driver.

A cyclist who had been riding in front of the lorry assumed that the lorry driver was sounding his horn at him.

The cyclist slowed down in front of the lorry causing it to stop, at which point the cyclist shouted foul and abusive language at the lorry driver and then hit the lorry causing damage to a spot light and the grill.

Police have released images of a man they believe can help with their inquiries.
