Cycling deaths: New lorry to reduce blind spot

15 April 2014 Last updated at 20:41 BST

A new lorry design aimed at reducing the number of cyclists killed in collisions with lorries has been approved by the European Parliament.

If Westminster agrees to the changes, lorries will have to have bigger windows, rounder fronts and crumple zones.

It is all to reduce the drivers' blind spot which have been blamed for many deaths.
