A bereaved family from Northumberland says the law is failing to protect vulnerable road users. Eilidh Cairns was killed in 2009 as she cycled to work through Notting Hill in London. The lorry driver, Joao Correia-Lopes wasn't prosecuted. Instead he admitted driving without corrected vision and was ordered to wear glasses when behind the wheel.
Last year, he was involved in a second fatal crash in the capital. He knocked down 97 year old Nora Gutman as she used a pedestrian crossing. This time, Lopes pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving. He's starting a 4 year jail sentence.
Eilidh Cairns' sister Kate travelled from her home in north Northumberland for the sentencing. She says this case shows the law is not protecting cyclists and pedestrians.
Following Eilidh's death, her family have campaigned for cameras and sensors to be fitted to HGVs to eliminate blindspots and so protect cyclists and pedestrians.
Lopes was disqualified from driving for 4 years. Kate Cairns believes he should never get behind the wheel again.
