This is the moment an angry cyclist kicks out at a passing car for getting to close - but viewers were divided over who was in the wrong.

The incident happened last Wednesday June 26, at around 7pm on Kings Avenue in Brixton, south London and was caught on film by a driving instructor's dash cam.

The Peugeot driver immediately slows their car and gives the cyclists more space.

The driver is then forced to brake once again when the second cyclist takes a swipe with his right hand, which makes light contact with the side of the car.

Peugeot - Driver - Cyclists - Message - Metres

Finally, the Peugeot - whose driver has finally got the cyclists' angry message - is seen trailing at least five metres behind the pair.

But the second cyclist, apparently angered by how close the car got to him and the other rider, ta waves his arm in its direction - as if warning its driver not to try to overtake again.
