It's a rather extreme solution to road safety - but an inventor has come up with a bicycle horn that should be IMPOSSIBLE for drivers to ignore.

It runs off a scuba diving air cylinder - and emits 178 decibels, the same as a Concorde jet taking off.

Keen cyclist Yannick Read, 41, designed The Hornster after repeatedly getting cut-up by car and lorry drivers

Drivers beware, if you don't share the road some strange guy has something that will make you go deaf

( It would be nice if people knew the difference but sadly most people don't )
