VIDEO: Motorcyclist involved in crash with car says police showed no interest in his headcam footage

A BIKER who captured a car's U-turn on his headcam moments before a crash says police showed no interest in the clear footage.
David Birch, from Allerton, Bradford, has complained to West Yorkshire Police that they turned away clear evidence.
The incident ended with his bike falling on top of him opposite the car park entrance at Howdens Joinery Company, in Duncombe Road, earlier this month.
The experienced rider said the car's driver had done an immediate U-turn right across his path, and had then reversed back towards him while he was still on the ground, before driving off.
The 58-year-old had tried to brake and avoid crashing, but his bike was in collision with the car's right hand side.
Several witnesses ran to his aid and when he rang 999 an operator told him police would be with him as soon as possible.

Mr Birch, who was badly shaken, said he took witnesses' details himself while he waited about 75 minutes before getting a message from police saying they could not get to him so he should go home, ring the non-emergency 101 number and wait for police to come and take a statement there.
