Boris Johnson today accused the European Union of putting cyclists' lives at risk by refusing to support improvements to the design of lorry cabs.

The London mayor wanted European countries to adopt new rules following a spate of cycling fatalities in 2013.

But he told ITV's The Late Debate his proposals was were being blocked by other European countries, including France.

In his first major TV interview since publicly backing 'Brexit', Johnson insisted his relationship with David Cameron could recover.

The mayor also denied leaving the EU would be a gamble for London.
