"My friend in the passenger seat captured the video. He was the one who spoke to her, it was only a brief chat as I did not want to block traffic coming off the roundabout.

"We were just astonished that she didn’t see a problem in what she had just done.

"A taxi driver shouted at her on the roundabout but he went off towards town and we took the same exit as her.

The Highway Code does not say anything explicitly about cycling with a dog.

However, the rules state you must not "ride in a dangerous, careless or inconsiderate manner" and "not carry anything which will affect your balance or may get tangled up with your wheels or chain".
