Hundreds of cyclists have staged a “die-in” protest in central London to raise concerns about road safety.
Bicycles were wheeled down Whitehall to the Treasury by campaigners calling for increased government spending to protect cyclists and pedestrians.
Five people – three cyclists and two pedestrians – have died on London’s streets in the last week.
The Department for Transport said it was committed to reducing the number of deaths and casualties among cyclists.
Nine cyclists died in London in 2016.
Protesters have also been calling for a reduction in London’s air pollution.
