London mayor cuts electric car charging scheme funds

London Mayor Boris Johnson has cut £13m from a scheme to install charging points for electric cars across London.

Mr Johnson had pledged to raise £20m for the £60m scheme which would see 22,500 charging points across London, with 7,500 being installed by 2013.
