A driver accused of driving into the path of a cyclist in Norwich and causing him to suffer broken bones has denied the charge in court.

Julio Pereira, 35, of Toftes Place, Norwich, appeared in Norwich Magistrates' Court on Monday where he pleaded not guilty to driving without due care and attention.

Prosecutor Waseem Raja said that on December 5 last year the defendant pulled out of Southwell Road, at the junction with Trafalgar Street, into the path of a cyclist.

He said the cyclist hit the side of his car and sustained broken bones in his foot.

Pereira, who represented himself in court, denied hitting the cyclist.
