'Screaming' traffic cone could save lives, full report

A Leicestershire company has invented a traffic cone which could help save lives.

Eight roadworkers have been killed in the last three years but now the Intellicone could help to reduce that number.

It has an in-built alarm which screeches if it is touched and sends a warning text message to workers. Kate Fisher reports.
