We have an old gas pipe in the understairs cupboard. The previous occupants had the gas meter moved, but this old pipe remained. This pipe goes behind the electrical CU which I'm due to have replaced soon.

We are looking to cut the old pipe out, but trying to working out what material it's made of.....cast iron, galvanised steel? Just trying to work out how it can be cut as a normal hacksaw won't do the job!

Its what's known as black iron
actually black painted steel pipe so angle grinder with care multitool with correct blade anything that will cut steel.
 
That is not cast iron!
Black painted mild steel, we were still regularly using it when I started in 60s even on domestic supply's.
