Furious row after toddler ‘hit and dragged by cyclist’.

A one-year-old girl was left with scratches on her face after she was hit and dragged along the ground by a cyclist who allegedly tried to flee the scene.

Freya Clancy, who is just 16 months old, was walking on a pedestrian path in Victoria Park, East London, when a cyclist travelling at “around 10mph hit her head on”.

Her arm then got caught in the spokes and the toddler was dragged along the ground until the cyclist slammed on her brakes at around 9am yesterday.

The girl’s stunned mum, Victoria Grant, told The Sun Online: “The cyclist came flying out of the gate and her front wheel hit my daughter in the face.

“It was awful. I was screaming and shouting ‘you have just run over my daughter’.”

Video footage taken at the scene shows the irate woman arguing with a local and Victoria claims she did not apologise or ask how her daughter was.

Footage also shows the woman speaking to an off-duty police officer in the park.

She told him: "The kid comes into the middle of my path, I don't even see the kid.

"They're all ganging up on me. The kid runs right in front of my path."

Freya was then rushed to Royal London Hospital where she had an x-ray on her arm, but luckily nothing was broken.

Victoria, 33, has now been told to moisturise her face to prevent the scratches from leaving a scar.

The mum-of-three is now trying to track the cyclist down after she claims the woman wouldn't pass on her details.
