Turkey election: Women's group raising its voice

As Turkey prepares for its 7 June election, a number of groups are hoping to make their voices heard.

In Izmir, one all-women group of cyclists is seeking greater equality, as well as more attention for environmental issues.

The environment is a subject which has historically been low on the country's political agenda.

Mark Lowen joined them on a trip.
