Jersey minister wants compulsory bike helmets for children

Cycle helmets could be made compulsory for anyone under the age of 14, if Jersey's politicians agree.

Transport Minister, Deputy Kevin Lewis, has proposed a legal move that would require children to wear them while cycling on roads.

In 2010, politicians agreed to support a move to "ensure cyclists were required to wear suitable safety helmets whilst cycling".

States members will debate the proposals on 29 April.
