The broadcaster Jeremy Vine has been stopped by police in London's Hyde Park for speeding on his bicycle (BBC News).
The BBC Radio 2 presenter said he was caught travelling at 16mph in a 5mph zone.
Afterwards he tweeted: "If cyclists are forced to travel at walking pace, they will return to the roads and mix it with trucks.”
Mr Vine also posted a short film of what happened using the social media app Vine.
He later added in a further tweet: "When I got to the office @BBCRadio2 and said I was radar-gunned at 16mph on my bicycle, producer said: YOU ARE LIVING ON THE EDGE."
