Going home along the road I overtook a highways agency lorry

Resolved Question:

going home along the road I overtook a highways agency lorry (not speeding) and he flashed me several times in quick succession, he passed me further down the road due to bad traffic and I saw his truck had a camera equipped, I thought I had enough space to complete the overtake by changing lanes in front of him and there was no accident, yet I'm worried about why he flashed me, have I committed an offense?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you,
Did he have to brake at all because of the manoeuvre please?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I didn't see him slow down, he was visible in both my rear and wing mirror before I started to change lanes and i was travelling faster than he was
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
does it change matters that this was on a motorway?
Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.
Ok then it makes no difference. But it would only be an offence if your driving fell below the standards of a reasonable driver. If it did not then you don't need to worry.
But it may not make any difference if the kit was not recording.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please? Alex

I've been thinking about the event and I'm not sure but I may have forgotten to indicate when returning to the left lane.
Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.
But that may not be enough. In any event it may not have been recording. If you didn't cut up then you would be fine. Does that help? Alex
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
so even if I didn't indicate, its not an offence if I left suffiecent space?
Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.
In my view that on its own wouldn't fall below the standard of a reasonable driver. Does that clairfy? Alex
