AN ARGUMENT between a cyclist and a driver in Old Town ended with the cyclist falling on the car's bonnet as the motorist tried to drive away.

A man in his 50s from Swindon was later arrested by police on suspicion of dangerous driving.

He has since been released from custody under investigation while officers continue their investigation into what happened.

The heated verbal exchange between a pedal cyclist and a Toyota Corolla driver happened around 6.20pm on Tuesday at the junction of Wood Street and Devizes Road.

The hurt cyclist - a man in his 30s - was checked over at the scene by an ambulance crew and did not suffer serious injury.

But he was said to be very shaken up.

Police are appealing for information about the road rage incident and want to hear from witnesses.

Anyone who saw the incident or can help in any other way should call 101.
