A police spokesman said: "At this early stage, officers believe there had been a heated argument between the cyclist and the driver while both were stationary.

"During the course of the dispute, the cyclist kicked the car, an Audi Q7.

"The woman drove the car away and was in collision with the cyclist and then the shop.

"Officers from Kingston CID are investigating. Enquiries continue to establish the full circumstances."
