Radio presenter Jeremy Vine appears to run red light on his electric bike


RADIO host and cycling campaigner Jeremy Vine appears to run a red light on his bike.

Vine was seen defying a red light to cross four lanes of traffic in west London to get to Hyde Park.

The BBC presenter was snapped on his black £3,000 Brompton folding bike on Friday, dressed in jeans and a blazer.

Vine, who commutes by bike from his home in Chiswick to the Radio 2 studios in Oxford Circus, is an outspoken critic about the safety of cyclists on the roads.

He is known for filming bad drivers with cameras on the front and back of his bike and posting them on Twitter.

Last year he shared a video in which a van appeared to come close to knocking him off his bike.

In the clip, he said: “Well, I’m safe, but why should I have to be in such danger just trying to get to work?

"I’m sick of the danger, I’m sick of the danger of cycling in London.”

In 2015 the Radio 2 presenter was arrested in Hyde Park for cycling at 16mph, when regulations limit cyclists to just 5mph in London’s Royal Parks.

His Radio 2 colleague Chris Evans quickly branded him ‘Speeding Vine’ and other social media users poked fun at police.
