The lorry possibly does fit into the last exemption of the 1988 RTA section 21. I just want to show why sometimes what seems like plenty of space (in common sense parlance, an indicator of failing to think) is not.

I ride past it, trying to avoid the door zone. I do thank the walkers who stop for me. Then go on. Further down the shared-use path I come across a bike that might have some difficulty passing this lorry.
