London Mayor urged to get to grips with road safety

After a week which saw a spate of fatal cycling accidents in London, Boris Johnson is being urged to get to grips with road safety by holding a special 'Safety Summit'.

The Mayor has been handed a letter from a parliamentary group demanding immediate, urgent action. The family of cyclist Venera Minakhmetova, who was killed at the Bow Roundabout, added to those calls, saying her death must lead to change.
