Call for mayor and TfL to cut cycling casualties

The mayor of London is being called on to reduce the number of serious cycling accidents on London's roads.

A report by London Assembly's transport committee said the number of cycling casualties had risen by 50% between 2006 and 2011.

The report recommends doubling the funding for cycling in the Transport for London (TfL) budget.

The mayor's office said details of a "major new investment in cycling" would be outlined later this year.

BBC London's Transport Correspondent Tom Edwards talks to Liberal Democrat London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon and the mayor's transport adviser Isobel Dedring.
