Cyclist's family call for action over crash death

The family of a 26-year-old cyclist who died from her injuries after a collision with a lorry in London have said more needs to be done to stop "parents losing their children on the streets of the capital".

Janina Gehlau was on Ludgate Hill, close to the junction with Farringdon Street, when the crash happened at about 11:30 BST on Friday.

She was taken to the Royal London Hospital where she died on Monday. Ten cyclists have died in road traffic accidents involving vehicles this year.

BBC London's Transport Correspondent Tom Edwards spoke to Green Party London Assembly member Darren Johnson and London Mayor Boris Johnson.
