The victim was driving his Honda Civic up the slip road at junction 25 of the M1 when the driver of a blue BMW began gesturing at him.

Both vehicles then carried on towards Bostocks Lane, where the driver of the white Honda Civic got out of his car. The BMW was then driven towards him but the driver was not hit or injured.

Shortly after that incident, the victim drove off and later turned into Gough Grove, where he was stopped by the BMW driver and the driver of a silver estate car, believed to be a Volvo.
