Members of an activist group have protested outside the Transport’s for London’s (TfL) offices to campaign for car-free zones and 20mph restrictions across central London.

Members of ‘Climate Rush’ cycled from Blackfriars Bridge to the TfL offices where speakers rallied members.

Andrew Tobert, from Climate Rush, said: “Imagine if cars were banned from central London?

“Buses would glide through town, people would feel safe cycling and our air would be clean. Children could walk to school.

“Instead, we have inefficiency. We have time being wasted and lives being lost.

Leon Daniels, who spoke on behalf of TfL, said: “The mayor is a passionate cyclist and his cycling revolution is a key priority.

“TfL has invested millions in improving London’s streets for all road users, especially cyclists over the last decade and will continue to do so.”
