A cyclist has raised concerns about a roundabout after filming helmet-cam footage of a near miss with a car.

Graham Simmons posted footage on Twitter of his experience on a roundabout in Southampton.

The tweet said: “I'm going to die on this roundabout and nobody seems willing to do anything about it. Please - it's up to five now.”

The video has now been viewed more than 67,000 times and has had over 900 retweets.

In an interview with the BBC, Simmons said: “I think what this roundabout needs is some way of corralling and slowing the approach.

“Obviously while they are doing something illegal by entering the roundabout whilst I have priority, for it to be this repeated and regular - it has to be a structural issue.”
