Hundreds of police took to London's most dangerous junctions today to launch a cycle safety campaign designed to save lives.
Across the capital officers handed out penalty notices to cyclists and motorists, as well as offering advice on how to make their journeys safer.
The rush-hour operation is a direct response to an recent increase in accidents - which saw six cyclists killed in just two weeks.
