A father, who's cycling around Cornwall and Devon with his family, has called on the Chief Constable to do more to ensure their safety on the roads. Tom Jones has posted footage of various vehicles overtaking them on the busy A392 near Newquay.
The Jones family had a near miss which nearly ended their trip just as it was getting started. Five-year-old Ruth was letting drivers know what she thought of the space they were giving her as they overtook near Newquay and then a car towing a caravan came within centimetres of knocking them off their bikes.
The family have video evidence of the near miss. Dad Tom was so angry he made a direct appeal to the Chief Constable, "It is not fair that a family like ours is being intimidated off Devon and Cornwall's roads. Please will you do something to restore our confidence?"
This was the response from Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer. He told ITV News that, road policing resources might be stretched but there will be more money for schemes in the autumn.

Dad Tom hopes his experience will encourage motorists to be more careful. He says it's "A totally avoidable situation that somebody has put you in for the sake of a few seconds saved but it's utterly terrifying for those few seconds and it's needless".
