Bush stacks bike into policeman
US President George W Bush grazed his hands when he collided with a police officer while cycling through the grounds of Gleneagles, the Scottish luxury hotel where world leaders are meeting.

Mr Bush, celebrating his 59th birthday, went for a ride shortly after arriving for the summit of the Group of Eight (G8) major powers, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said.

The collision with the policeman, on security duty, occurred about a hour into his ride, with Mr Bush going at a "pretty good speed", Mr McClellan said.

Mr Bush slid along the road, suffering scrapes on his hands and arms that were bandaged by the White House doctor.

His bicycle was damaged and he had to return from the ride in a van, but his plans to have dinner with Queen Elizabeth were not affected.

The officer was taken to hospital as a precaution.
