The driver’s employment was terminated immediately once the managing director of the company the van belonged to had been able to review the footage.
He added: “My wife and I are both very keen cyclists ourselves so fully appreciate the impact/trauma that a near miss like this would have on anyone in this situation.
A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “The van driver has been summoned to Crawley Magistrates’ Court on July 19 to face a charge of dangerous driving.”
