Cycle helmets could be made compulsory for anyone under the age of 14, if Jersey's politicians agree.

Transport Minister, Deputy Kevin Lewis, has proposed a legal move that would require children to wear them while cycling on roads.

In 2010, politicians agreed to support a move to "ensure cyclists were required to wear suitable safety helmets whilst cycling".

States members will debate the proposals on 29 April.
