This is the terrifying moment a cyclist had a near miss with a van on a busy road.

The footage captures the moment a bike rider could have been clipped by a passing vehicle on the stretch of the B1127 road between Southwold and Wrentham.

The video was filmed from a first-person perspective and shows the close call between the truck and the cyclist.

In the footage, the cyclist is seen travelling on the far left side of the road before a van makes a quick dash to get in front.

The blue van speeds up and edges closer to the cyclist to merge in front and avoid a head-on collision.

In the footage, the cyclist swerves to the left as the van overtakes them.

The startling footage was shared on social media and sparked a discussion about the cyclists’ close call on the busy road.
