More action is needed in order to combat cyclist deaths, according to one group.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has called for safer roads for cyclists, along with greater provision in cyclist training and improved driver awareness.

Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: "It is vital to create a coherent safe network for cyclists by introducing appropriate cycle lanes and tracks, linking quieter streets, developing routes alongside rivers, canals and through parks where possible, and introducing more 20mph schemes in our towns and cities."

Mr Clinton noted that, along with boosting the provision of cyclist training, organisations must hammer home the message that drivers need to keep their speed down.

In 2012, there were 61 children killed on the roads, marking one more than in the previous year, while the number of seriously injured children dropped by six per cent to 2,211 in 2012.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801643033-ADNFCR
