Child cyclist casualties: Merseyside is the worst metropolitan area

Merseyside has one of the worst rates of serious child cyclist casualties in Great Britain.

The chart shows a comparison of the police forces covering the metropolitan counties and London for the rate of child cyclists reported killed or seriously injured per 100,000 children.

Merseyside has the highest rate - the rate is over twice that of Greater Manchester, and five times that of London.

The second chart shows the 50 police force areas of Great Britain, with Merseyside close to the bottom.
