A life changed forever after being hit by a lorry

A former champion triathlete who faced having her leg amputated after being hit by a lorry while cycling in north London told how her life has been "changed forever" and called on the Government to protect cyclists.

Doris Barrera-Torrico, a student from Gipsy Hill, suffered horrific leg injuries when she was knocked off her bike and crushed by a lorry in Holloway Road in 2007.
