There are calls to make Cornwall's main roads safer for cyclists after the A30 tragedy.

Charity riders Toby Wallace and Andrew McMenigall died when it happened at Summercourt on Tuesday.

The Cyclists' Touring Club says banning bikes from dual carriageways is not the answer.

Spokeswoman Ria Weston said: "Allocating space at the side of the roads for cyclists to use, especially on roads like the Land's End to John O'Groats route where we know there are a lot of cyclists using those roads. Maybe also signage, so lorry drivers and other drivers using that road know.

"Rather than just saying, cyclists are not allowed on this road, in a way it's blaming the cyclists for being hit because, oh you're on the roads you're around to get hit, we should improve safety, improve awareness, improve education of people about the behaviour of cyclists on the roads and the fact that they're going to be around."
