Parents' safety call after son dies in rural road accident

New figures from the Department for Transport show that on average three people die every day on Britain's country roads.

It means motorists are 11 times more likely to die in a car accident on a rural road than a motorway.

Daniel Warin was 17 when he was killed after his car hit a tree on an empty country road late at night.

His parents Janet and David spoke to BBC Breakfast as the government launches a new campaign to highlight the dangers of driving in the countryside.
