Family call for more protection for cyclists

The family of a Northumberland cyclist, killed as she rode to work, say the legal system is failing to protect vulnerable road users. Eilidh Cairns was hit by a lorry in London in 2009.

Now the same driver is starting a four year prison sentence after knocking down a pedestrian. Eilidh's sister says attitudes must change to prevent similar deaths.
