Footage which captures the horrifying moment a child became trapped in the arch of a speeding cyclist's has been released by police to highlight the dangers of cycling in pedestrian areas.
The shocking clip shows a Midlands biker heading at high speed towards a four-year-old child who was running along in a pedestrianised area.
After being smashed into, the child becomes trapped between the arch of the bicycle's wheel as it continues to travel forwards. The cyclist is then thrown into the air as the bike flips over before crashing down onto the pavement.
The parents - who had travelled from Scotland to Windsor as part of a holiday to Legoland - can then be seen running to their child's aid. The youngster suffered a broken arm, burns on his face and head and lost a tooth in the crash on Peascod Street, Windsor.
Richard Manners, 21, from Staffordshire, admitted to causing bodily harm to the boy by wilful misconduct at Reading Crown Court.
Christine Agnew, sentencing said: "The victim was visiting Windsor and enjoying the privileges of a cycle free zone, so his parents did not insist on holding his hand. You came cycling down that street at some speed, in breach of this pedestrianisation.
"In the CCTV footage, it is apparent you are unable to brake when the youngster runs into your path. You collided with him and he was trapped in the arch of your bicycle. It has had a lasting effect on a very young child in relation to bikes and cars in general."
The court heard how Manners' bike had no brakes and was being ridden down a pedestrians-only road when he hit the boy, despite receiving a warning the day before about speeding down that same road.
Manners was jailed for seven weeks.
