    Hi,
    Your news report about the cyclist being hit but an iced bottle, the same thing happened to my 16 year old brother in belmont.
    He was working (dominos) on an e-bike and a 2 litre bottles thrown at him causing him to crash into a pole which resulted in a jarred neck and swollen jaw.
    I have also seen on facebook that the same thing happened to some one at Cardiff.
    they need to be stopped before sometoppesomeone gets seriously hurt!
