The family and freinds of a cyclist killed by a careless driver have launched a new road safety campaign in her memory.

41-year-old Kathryn Burge - who was known as Kate - was hit by a car whilst cycling in Kirk Michael in August last year.

Yesterday a 63-year-old woman from Sulby was handed a suspended prison sentence for causing her death.

The campaign aims to increase the awareness of the vulnerability of cyclists - you can get more information by visiting safecyclingiom.com.

Kate's partner Sean explains what changes they want to see:
