Olympic torch: Security team tackle cyclist

Bit harsh

This was the moment a youngster was tackled to the ground by security when he made the mistake of cycling near the Olympic torch as it passed through Suffolk.

The Metropolitan Police told the BBC: "A male on a pedal cycle attempted to enter the security bubble around the torchbearer. The Met's torch security team prevented him from gaining access to the torchbearer causing the cyclist to fall from his bike. He immediately got back on his bike and left."

A spokesperson added: "Although there was no disruption to the relay, we'd like to remind people not to enter the security bubble, this is for their own safety as well as the torchbearer's - The Torch Relay is a moving convoy including vehicles."
