Just two of Northern Ireland's 90 MLAs responded to a plea for help from motorcycle safety campaigners concerned about potentially deadly barriers on our major roads.

Martyn Boyd of the Motorcycle Action Group UK (MAG) told the Belfast Telegraph that only Alliance's Kellie Armstrong and the Green Party's Rachel Woods took the time to respond and help after being contacted.

Bangor man Martyn (53), a lifelong motorcyclist, is the local face of a UK-wide campaign to phase out a type of central reservation barrier he says poses a lethal threat to riders.
