Lorries need 'life-saving facelifts', say campaigners

Lorries should be given "life-saving facelifts" to reduce the numbers of cyclists killed on the roads, campaigners have said.

On average 4,000 cyclists are killed in Europe every year in accidents involving heavy goods vehicles.

Next month, politicians will vote on a new law that campaigners claim will help lorry drivers spot cyclists - but the British government is against it.

Anna Holligan reports from Brussels.
