The hunt for a motorist who deliberately drove his Mercedes into a cyclist is continuing.
Police have issued a further appeal for witnesses after a car driver deliberately knocked a cyclist off his bicycle.
Officers said that the cyclist - a man in his 20s - was on Trinity Street, when the car was driven too close to him outside Wightman’s shop.
The cyclist caught up with the car in Market Place and shouted at the driver, police said, who then drove the car at the cyclist and knocked him off his bike, before driving away.
The cyclist suffered elbow, knee and hand injuries.
