A specialist police unit dealing with HGV accidents is to be disbanded.
Transport for London has withdrawn the £1 million-a-year funding that pays for the Met's Commercial Vehicle Education Unit, which helps prevent cyclists being crushed by lorries.
Mayor Boris Johnson, who is chairman of TfL, was told shutting down the unit was "misguided".
The CVEU will close in March.
Jenny Jones, a Green party London Assembly member, said:* "The Mayor is risking Londoners' lives in order to save a small amount of money."*
