Video: Close Call During Women's Tour In Hemel

A week on from Stage 5 of the Women's Tour coming to Hemel Hempstead, Heart's been given a video of an incredibly close call between a policeman and the cyclists.

The officer is seen on a motorbike standing on a roundabout near the Kodak tower in the town during the first lap around 2pm.

He moves off as the front runners approach, forcing them to split either side of him.

It's after a massive pile up during the race in Suffolk a few days before, that injured leading cyclist Lizzie Armistead.

British cyclist Hannah Barnes won Stage 5 of the Women's Tour last Sunday (June 21st).

Germany's Lisa Brennauer won the Tour overall.
