Fine to not wear a helmet?

BBC London News reports that fines are being issued for not wearing a helmet. This is incorrect, so here is my email to yourlondon@bbc.co.uk:
Hello, your recent report states that cyclist may be fined for not wearing a helmet. This is incorrect and you need to publicly retract the statement.

Kind regards,
 John Swindells

I've developed a geographical habit with my helmet wearing. I don't use one while bumbling around Cambridge, but do use one when I go out in London.
