‘I looked out my door, and presumed she had fallen off her bike but then saw her dad come running back towards her and realised that she had been knocked off the bike by an adult.

‘There was a group of people gathered. I gave her a drink and a bowl of water and we mopped her wounds. They were just grazes but she was very upset.

‘There is a bridge and by the side of the bridge there is a little wall, 18 inches high, and mountain bikers think it is clever to hop up onto the wall and hop off the other end.

‘The family were walking along the wall and as they got to the end he was jumping off. He jumped right into the little girl.

‘I think part of the problem is that it has got so popular. There are more people cycling on the footpath.’

Mr Powell said he understood the family had reported the incident to West Mercia Police.
