A VAN driver who knocked Tour de France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins off his bike has accepted the offer of a driver awareness course.

The 32-year-old athlete spent a night in hospital following the accident near his home in Eccleston, Lancashire, last November, while he was on a training run in Wigan.

The four-time Olympic champion was treated for a bruised hand and ribs.

After a formal interview, the van driver, Cath Burrows, 44, was summonsed by Lancashire Police over driving without due care and attention.

It has emerged she has agreed to complete a driver awareness course.

A police spokeswoman said it considered the matter had been dealt with.
