Tour star urges drivers to keep a lookout for cyclists

A professional cyclist from Essex is calling on drivers and those who ride bikes to be more careful on our roads.

Alex Dowsett has competed in some of the world's top cycling races and also with Great Britain.

He's had his own bad experiences on the roads and his own mum suffered serious injuries when she was knocked off her bike. Luke Farrington's report does contain some flash photography.
