Crap policing in Buckinghamshire

A CYCLIST scarred for life after being hit by a car claims police officers failed to speak to him about his accident for nearly a month. Graeme Cooper was knocked unconscious, had to have a pin inserted into his hand and has a permanent scar on his chin after being hit by the car when cycling home from work.

The incident began when three youths travelling in a Volkswagen Polo threw a drink carton at Mr Cooper when they drove past him on Hill Avenue, Amersham. The car then got stuck in traffic queuing at a roundabout – and Mr Cooper believes the occupants either drove the vehicle into him or opened a door to knock him off after becoming worried he would confront them.
