An innovative new scheme is being trialled on a small stretch of road between Kentish Town and King's Cross in London that sees double yellow lines replaced with rubber 'armadillo' blocks and plant pots.

The project is the first of its kind in the UK and hopes to make cycling in the city safer and less intimidating for those new to two wheels.
