GB News Breakfast show host Isabel Webster has revealed she was left ‘shaking’ after her five-year-old daughter Poppy nearly died while out on a family bike ride.
The traumatised presenter told how an idyllic family bike ride through the park turned into a ‘dice with death’ as her daughter was almost crushed by a speeding van.
Isabel said: "I’m still in shock…On the way home from the park Poppy lost control of her bike on a downhill stretch.
"As luck would have it (!) that happened to be the exact moment the cycle lane stopped to make way for a road coming out of an estate, which happened to have a white van hurtling along, accelerating towards Poppy.
Isabel was out with Poppy and husband Liam when tragedy nearly struck
"What happened next is a blur, but also happened in slow motion.
"I kept thinking the van would see her but at the same time, as clear as day, I thought I was about to watch her die.
"Everyone was screaming, pedestrians, other cyclists..."
Isabel praised her husband Liam’s quick thinking for saving Poppy’s life.
She added: "From behind us he jumped off his bike and launched himself in front of the van, pushing Poppy away.

"Miraculously, I don't even know how, the driver missed her and Liam and we all walked away unscathed.
"Oh my God I have never shaken so much.
