A cyclist has attempted to speed through a closing barrier, instead of clearing he managed to get his head stuck in the gate.

The CCTV footage which has been uploaded to YouTube shows the barrier opening to allow a car in and then close as the cyclist builds up his speed and smashed in to the gate jamming his head.

The gate then swings open dragging the cyclists with it.

The CCTV which was captured in 2012 appeared on YouTube on August 6th 2014.
