Worcestershire bike safety campaign is launched

A motorbike safety campaign is being launched in Worcestershire after 11 fatal accidents over the past three years.

West Mercia Police said there had also been 149 people seriously injured in accidents involving motorbikes in the county over the same period.

Posters urging motorists to be aware of bikes are being put up next to roads in the area.

The A44 and A442 are being targeted as they are popular bike routes.
