A cyclist has told of his terror after a “deranged” driver tailed him for more than a mile through the city before ploughing into his bike and speeding off with him hanging on to the car bonnet.

Iain Thomson was forced to flee the driver of a Renault Clio who pursued him from Fountainbridge to Johnston Terrace after a minor altercation on his way to work.

The 32-year-old thought he had escaped his attacker when he was rammed from behind and forced on to the bonnet of the hatchback.

The car sped off with the pub supervisor clinging to the windscreen wipers.
