man who attacked a cyclist in Bexley in May was in Bexleyheath Magistrate’s
Court yesterday. John Nicholls, a farrier from Dartford pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault,
was fined £400, ordered to pay £100 compensation to the victim, Simon Page, with £85
prosecution costs and a victim surcharge of £15.
Bexleyheath’s police did not cover themselves with glory in this case, they knew who owned the car but gave up the investigation when the owner said (rightly) “it wasn’t me guv”.
