An inquest into the death of a talented young climate change scientist has heard that she was killed because she rode her bike into a lorry's blind spot.
Dr Katharine Giles died in a collision with an HGV in Victoria last April. The coroner has repeated a warning to cyclists not to undertake lorries. Ria Chatterjee has this report.
Green Party politician and London Assembly member Jenny Jones has been taking part in a "die-in" protest in Vauxhall, calling on the Mayor to take further action to protect cyclists on London's roads.
Boris Johnson says his cycle safety priority is improving 33 dangerous junctions in the capital.
He had said he'd improve 100, but says the money will be better spent on targeting fewer roads.
Our Political Correspondent Simon Harris reports from a cycling seminar held at City Hall today.
Boris Johnson has come under fire for his latest promises to improve cycle safety at the capital's road junctions.
The Mayor said in the next few months, Transport for London will set out a programme to make 33 junctions safer.
But the Green Party claims his plans still don't go far enough, and more urgent action is needed.

In front of them sat experts from campaigning bodies, transport research and the police - all ready to get into a proper discussion - and yet the MPs demonstrated that they didn't even know the most basic of facts.
Evidence and statistics were bypassed in favour of opinions and anecdotes on sideline topics.
Such a clear demonstration of lack of research and understanding at this level of seniority would, in any other business, be classed as negligent.
Former Olympic cycling champion Chris Boardman says MPs investigating cycling safety should be "embarrassed by their performance" during their Select Committee hearing.
Chris Boardman is British Cycling's policy adviser and claims MPs on the House of Commons Transport Committee showed they "didn't even know the most basic of facts".
The committee is taking evidence following the spate of cyclist accidents which led to the deaths of six cyclists in London during a two-week period last month.
Tonight, more than 1, 000 cyclists and drivers lay sprawled across the road outside Transport for London's headquarters, at a protest against dangerous traffic conditions. London Mayor Boris Johnson praised them for drawing attention to road safety in the capital. He said:

"This targeted operation has been hugely effective at raising awareness of road safety among motorists and cyclists.
"This is a balanced operation reminding everyone of their duty to take care of each other while out on the roads, and I hope the figures put to rest concerns by some groups that they are being singled out."
More than 1,000 cyclists lay sprawled across a Southwark road this evening in a protest against dangerous traffic conditions. Dubbed a "die-in", protesters blocked roads outside the Transport for London headquarters as part of a vigil for six cyclists killed in the capital this month.
The demonstration saw riders spread across Blackfriars Road with their bikes strewn around them, while others held candles in tribute to the latest spate of casualties.
