Lorry changes 'could cut accidents'

It's claimed that European rule changes allowing longer and rounder lorry cabs could cut accidents involving "vulnerable" road-users.

Last week, Dr Katharine Giles died after colliding with a tipper-truck, as she cycled to work during morning rush hour in Victoria.

The proposal has been welcomed by London's transport commissioner, Sir Peter Hendy.

If it becomes law, the new design could be on the roads by 2018.
