Dangerous cycling campaign

11 April 2011, 11:48

A family are campaigning to get tougher sentences for people who kill through dangerous cycling after the death of their daughter.

Rhiannon Bennett, 17, died after being hit by a cyclist in Buckingham in 2007.  Instead of being jailed, the rider got away with just a two thousand two hundred pound fine.

The Bennett family are being supported in their fight by their MP, Andrea Leadsom, who represents South Northamptonshire.  The family have had a brief meeting with the Roads Safety Minister Mike Penning and they're hoping for a longer meeting with the minister after Easter.
