1, 000 turn out for cyclist vigil

More than 1,000 cyclists lay sprawled across a Southwark road this evening in a protest against dangerous traffic conditions. Dubbed a "die-in", protesters blocked roads outside the Transport for London headquarters as part of a vigil for six cyclists killed in the capital this month.

The demonstration saw riders spread across Blackfriars Road with their bikes strewn around them, while others held candles in tribute to the latest spate of casualties.
