A six-year-old girl fell from her bike after a couple left her no space on a trail despite repeated calls to move her.

The moment was captured on video and showed the girl on the way with her father shouting “excuse me” to the man and woman walking their dog.

But the pair do not move and the girl tries to cycle between them, before falling off her bike and hitting the man on her leg.

The girl can then be heard crying loudly after the incident on the Blackwell Trail in Nottinghamshire, before the walker kicked his bike and left.

The girl’s mother, Michelle Prost, posted the incident on Facebook and was inundated with messages of support, later posting an update saying she had reported the matter to the police.

Nottinghamshire police said they wanted to speak to anyone who could have seen what happened or recognize those who were pictured.

The video shows the girl going down Blackwell Trail yesterday with her father.

After the collision, his father confronts the man and shouts angrily, “I have said sorry several times” before the two men quarrel over what happened.

The six-year-old can be heard crying as the dog walker kicks his bike away.

Her mother said her daughter was “traumatized” by the incident.

She claimed that the dog walker replied “so damn what”.

Ms. Prost posted the video with the caption, “So this couple deliberately ignores my 6-year-old daughter who rings her bell and says sorry.

“She starts to scream and waver in panic.

“The man turns and looks at my daughter, then the couple looks at themselves but continues to ignore it on purpose. She then overlaps them in panic.

“She’s new to bike rides, it really upset her. The man becomes verbally abusive and says “so what the fuck what? “

“What a horrible man. My daughter is traumatized. They clearly have a problem with the cyclists and made a point of not moving.

She later wrote, “I’m so mad at the way she is shaken hours later. Absolutely disgusting to make a little girl feel threatened. “

Posting an update, Ms. Prost said, “Thank you for all the support messages. My daughter is fine, I hope we will bring her back on horseback soon to help her move on.

“It was reported to the police.”

Social media users crowded into the couple, with accusations of “absolutely terrible”, “disgusting” and “horrible”.

A number of people had asked Ms. Prost to report them to the police.

We wrote “what an absolute p ****! Poor child, I hope she is well, “while another said,” This is absolutely terrible! I hope she is doing well.

Detective Superintendent Kev Broadhead said, “The Nottinghamshire police want to speak to anyone who has seen or recognized these pictures so that officers can establish the circumstances of this incident.

“As more and more people walk and cycle according to the new government directives, we encourage everyone to be aware of their environment and to be attentive to other people using the trails and parks in order to maintain social distance . “
