Should new cycling laws be introduced?

Drivers can be prosecuted for death by dangerous driving, but is it time to introduce a death by cycling law?

This comes after the husband of a woman who was killed by a cyclist called for radical changes in the cycling culture and much tougher laws.

Charlie Alliston, 20, was travelling at 18mph when he crashed into mother-of-two Kim Briggs in February last year. The cyclist was convicted of “furious driving” and bodily harm, but cleared of any manslaughter charges.

In a heated debate, Richard Madeley locked horns with the Cycling UK spokesman Duncan Dollimore about the accountability of cyclists on the road.

Watch the fiery debate above.

Could gender-free classrooms help address the pay gap between men and women ?

Statistics show that on average women are paid 18% less than men, and based on current progress it will take 62 years to bridge the pay gap. No one can afford to wait that long! So does the answer lie in removing gender differences at an early age in the school classroom?

TV show No More Boys And Girls explores this very idea. For six weeks, Graham Andre teaches kids in a gender-free classroom at Lanesend Primary School on the Isle of Wight by turning against the norms and conducting a series of experiments to challenge the idea that boys and girls are fundamentally different.

Graham and the show's presenter Dr Javid Abdelmoneim came in this morning to discuss the project and give their thoughts. Watch full report and interview above.
