Members of the Scottish parliament have called for a safety summit after the death of another cyclist in Edinburgh.

The total for the year has now reached 4, raising concerns over the future of cycling safety in the city.

The bike rider who is believed to be in his 40s was killed after an accident involving a taxi.

Lothian Green MSP Alison Johnstone said: “Cycling is a generally safe activity, and the best way to improve safety is to get more people on their bikes to form a critical mass on the roads.

“However, it is clear that we need a radical rethink of how we design our streets to make them far safer for cyclists and pedestrians.”

Paramedics were called to the scene of the bicycle accident yesterday morning where the man who is believed to have been cycling to work, had sustained serious head injuries.

He was shortly after pronounced dead at the scene.
