School Reporters from Robert Clack School spoke to paramedic Mark Smith whose 16-year-old son Ryan was left in a coma after a cycling accident where he was not wearing his helmet. Mark has since launched 'Team Smith' - a campaign to encourage young people to stay safe when cycling by wearing hi-vis clothing and, most importantly, a helmet.
