I was laden with shopping so I took the cyclepath (which is less convenient as towards the end shows). I heard this horn go off and turned to see a AJ58 NZB Swiss Laundry lorry tailgating a cyclist. The cyclist was moving at a fair speed (thus requiring them to use the road and not the cycle path*). The lorry made several dash attempts to pass when there was no space and stopped just before hitting the bike. This whilst the pedestrain lights are red and the local infant schools are just turning out. Eventually the lorry makes a mad dash round to no avail whatsoever as it's part of too much traffic and it just stuck at the next lights where the cyclist comes past again.

* Too Fast for Shared Path
The advise from the Department of Transport (webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/+/http://www.dft.gov.uk/consultations/archive/2004/ltnwc/annexdcodeofconductnoticefor1688) which says to not use it at speed. I'm sure the pedestrians would agree with that, and I'd like to protect them too.
