    What is the world coming to?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40889511

    I hope they throw the book at this guy. Attempted murder although probably some smart-assed lawyer will get him off with self-defence and the woman charged with obstruction.
    Shocking behaviour.

    They've got some 50 year old from Chelsea for it.

    It's been all over down here. His life's not going to worth living, the asshole.

    There's a public footpath on the South side of the Thames that runs from Chelsea Bridge all the way to Greenwich. It's a beautiful walk...or it was. It's like a bleedin' Olympic training camp and you can't walk for joggers. They outnumber tourists and everyday pedestrians by about 5 - 1.

    Something has top be done as there's enough parks and back-roads they can use, rather than take up the popular routes.

    Tossers.

    I prefer running in the park. You don't have to stop for the roads and traffic continually.

    I go out early so in the winter I'm forced onto the roads but there's usually no-one around at that time.

    5 to 1? Think that might be a tad exaggerating. I've seen the lunchtime office joggers but never seen them outnumber regular peds and tourists by 2:1 never mind 5:1.
    Spent many an afternoon at the tourist trap Founders Arms and the Hornimans(love that name) watching folk vie over space on the South Bank.

    Hes exaggerating obviously but the point remains the same. Pavement running is out of control in lots of big cities and Edinburgh's no different. Im a runner myself and there needs to be more events like Parkrun that attracts hundreds to Cramond for a 5k. Organise and promote it properly every morning and you'd get the pavement runners getting the competitive running bug, off the pavements (where they appear to be chucking innocent women under buses for kicks these days) and probably make yourself some serious money into the bargain. Go on, entrepreneurial investors

    To do this to anyone is bad enough, but what goes through your mind to do this to (I presume) a random person.

    Runners, cyclists, cars parked on pavements.

    Us pedestrians are the ones that need protective gear now!

    I'd charge him with attempted murder, given the chance.

    What a despicable thing to do, even if she's in his road what makes him think his right of way is more important than her's?

    Would 100% jail the **** for that. Can you imagine that was your wife or your mum, and she hadn't been so lucky. Think about trying to explain to your kids how she died.

    Attempted murder is thrown around too often in my opinion. Prick, yes. Trying to kill someone, I'd take some convincing.

    Total erse but there's no way he deliberately threw her under a bus, which the inevitable trial by social media will accuse him of.

    Turns out the guy's an American millionaire so the chances of him doing time, even is he is convicted of any offence, are probably small. Money talks unfortunately.

    He claims he was in the US at the time.

    I doubt the police would have bothered even questioning him if that were true. Unless he's really good in a kayak it wouldn't take long to verify which side of the Atlantic he was on in May surely?

    Should be easy to prove either way...you'd think.

    There may still be mileage in my theory that it was the headmaster from the inbetweeners.

    If you watch where they travel, compared to the shadow on the path, it looks to me like he steps towards her and she steps away from him, both at the last second. If she hadn't it could have been worse.
    Idiot has most of the pavement anyway and he made no attempt to move over.

    It works when I click on it. Here's a copy and paste

    A man who has been arrested after a woman was pushed in front of a bus on London's Putney Bridge has been identified as a millionaire US investment banker - but the suspect says he was not in the country at the time the alleged offence took place.
    Eric Bellquist was arrested following a police appeal after a 33-year-old woman was knocked down and only avoided serious injury thanks to the quick reflexes of a double-decker bus driver, in footage captured on CCTV.
    He was detained by officers on Thursday before being released pending further enquiries.


    A statement issued by the law firm acting for Mr Bellquist said: "Our client has been wrongly implicated in this matter; he categorically denies being the individual concerned and has irrefutable proof that he was in the United States at the time of the incident.
    "Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation."
    Mr Bellquist works for private capital investment firm Hutton Collins, which says he is on the boards of Byron Hamburgers and Wagamama and was responsible for the firm's investment in Caffè Nero.



    A graduate from the University of Colorado at Boulder, he previously worked at Lehman Brothers.
    He lives in Chelsea, according to MailOnline, and has been with Hutton Collins since 2002.
    A Met Police statement said: "At about 74.0am on Friday, 5 May the 33-year-old victim was walking across Putney Bridge on the east side heading towards Putney Bridge Tube Station when a male jogger knocked her over into the road and into the path of an oncoming bus, which narrowly missed hitting her.
    "The bus stopped and some passengers got off and rushed to the victim's aid. She received minor injuries from the incident.

    "About 15 minutes later the jogger came back the other way across the bridge. The victim tried to speak to him but he did not acknowledge her and carried on jogging.
    "Officers continue to appeal for any witnesses to the incident."

    Do folk think this is just a random attack on a woman by a guy out for a jog, will put money on him knowing her, ex partner or something like that.

    I'll take that bet

    She has been interviewed saying that she didn't know him, waited and tried to speak to
    Him when he jogged back, and he ignored her..very strange , aggressive behaviour..

    Imagine if it had been the tram or the tube.. Her head would have been smashed... Whatever he's gonna get charged with it got to much more than something that results in a wee wrist slap.

    I sincerely hope that's not the case. He deserves a jail sentence.
    If it has to be a suspended one, can I suggest by the balls.

    Southbank is a nightmare with them, also the millennium bridge. Arrogant pricks not moving for anyone. Wee nudge can upset them a wee bit though 😉
