Helmet-cam secures prosecution

Footage sent to police

A helmet-mounted camera has helped to track down a driver who almost knocked a local cyclist off his bike.

The shaken rider filmed a car dangerously overtaking another vehicle on the Island's roads earlier this week, almost forcing them off the road.

Footage was sent in to police, who identified the motorist responsible.

A fine of £120 and three penalty points were issued.

Officers say the cameras, as well as in-car 'dashcams', are becoming an increasingly helpful tool to prosecute irresponsible road users - especially in cases where who is to blame isn't clear.
