The British Transport Police have had to respond to a video posted online which depicts one of their vehicles incorrectly overtaking a cyclist at an interchange in Leeds.
The video, which surfaced on Monday morning via Youtube, was posted by user 'arronls' who entitled the video, 'British Transport Police show us how it's done.' The user described it by saying "Nice to see them setting an example and demonstrating the safest way to approach vulnerable road users."
The video shows the BTP car stopped behind the cyclist before overtaking on the left hand side as they both travel towards the A58.
Cycling Weekly contacted the BTP for comment on the video to which a British Transport Police spokesman said:
“We are aware of a video online, showing one of our vehicles and a cyclist at traffic lights, said to be in Leeds.
“We are carrying out enquiries into the contents of the video.”
