Barbed wire strung across popular cycling byway in Kent

The wire was strung at throat level

A mountain biker has found barbed wire strung across a public byway in Kent that is used as a descent by local riders.

Daniel Webster posted on Facebook on Thursday: “I usually do this local trail as a down hill part, lucky I didn’t. Thought I would do it in reverse today. Was neck high and would usually be doing around 20mph I wouldn’t have stood a chance.” The post has now received nearly 6,000 shares and scores of angry comments.
