This was an unfortunate accident. My Rt Hon Friend the Secretary of State got out of the car, checked the cyclist was okay and waited until he was back on his feet. He spoke to the cyclist and apologised; they shook hands. No details were requested at the time by either party. The Secretary of State has since been in contact with the cyclist and the matter is closed.
