WATCH: Police on push-bikes to get headcams

(Updated 11:58am 17th April 2017)
New head cameras for police officers on bikes are being rolled out across the Duchy.
It is part of a fresh initiative to reduce collisions with cyclists and help protect more vulnerable road users.
Officers warn it can be a life or death situation.
Chief Inspector Adrian Leisk is in charge of road policing in Cornwall.
He said: "We aim through this operation to raise awareness of the plight of vulnerable road users and to encourage greater harmony from the diversity of road users to ensure people can go about their journeys safely and finish the journeys they've started".
And he says it is particularly aimed at people who driving unnecessarily fast.
He added: "Are those extra few seconds, is that extra time saved, worth an individual's serious injuries or an individuals life? You going to court, you potentially going to prison, having that on your conscience for the rest of your life? All for a save few seconds".
Fred Mitchell from Clive Mitchell Cycles thinks the initiative is a good idea - but says it isn't always the driver's fault.
He said: "Actually it's a really good idea for both sides - for the cyclists and drivers, because it shows both sides of the story. There's two sides to it.
"I think cyclists suffer generally with cars overtaking where it's narrow and maybe cutting in too quick".
He also offers this advice for anyone cycling on the road: "If you're riding in a big group, it's always nice to give a gap so cars can actually overtake two groups, rather than just one big group. I think that's quite an important thing.
"Also don't ride too close to the hedge - you've got to be a bit brave really and stay out in the road a little bit.
"But obviously everyone is using the roads, so you have to be far on both sides".
