London cyclist deaths: Road users' behaviour has 'changed'

A traffic safety operation in London sparked by the death of six cyclists in two weeks has changed the behaviour of road users, police have claimed.

More than 13,800 fines have been issued to drivers and cyclists as part of Operation Safeway.

Metropolitan Police officers were sent to 166 key junctions during rush-hour periods as part of the scheme.

The operation, which started in November, was due to end on 3 January but officers have extended it until the end of this week.

BBC London's transport correspondent Tom Edwards spoke to cyclists and Det Ch Supt Glyn Jones.
