·Freelance Writer

This is the shocking moment a woman was pushed in front of a bus after she collided with a jogger on a west London street.

Dramatic CCTV of the incident shows a man running along Putney Bridge before appearing to push the 33-year-old pedestrian into the road.

A bus heading straight towards the woman is forced to swerve into the adjacent lane, only narrowly avoiding hitting her.

The Metropolitan Police said the bus stopped and passengers tended to the woman – who received minor injuries – following the incident on Friday, May 5 at about 7.40am.

Officers said the jogger ran the other way across the bridge around 15 minutes later and the victim attempted to speak to him, but “he did not acknowledge her”.

Investigating officer Sergeant Mat Knowles said: “The victim was put in extreme danger when she was knocked into the road.

“It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle.”

An appeal has now been launched for witnesses or anyone who recognises the jogger in the CCTV.

He is described as white in his early to mid-30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair and wearing a light grey T-shirt and dark blue shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
