Sadiq Khan said:

"I am deeply humbled to have received the support of tens of thousands of Londoners.

"I am determined to repay that trust by winning the Mayoral election next May, and making a real difference to Londoners lives.

"London gave me and my family huge opportunities. A council house so we could save for a deposit to buy our own home. A secure job for my dad as a bus driver. A great education for me and my siblings, affordable university places and good quality apprenticeships.

"As Mayor I will provide more opportunities for all Londoners.

"My priorities for Londoners are clear. An affordable and secure home to rent or buy. More jobs with higher wages for the lowest paid. Making it easier to set up and run a successful business. Reducing the cost of commuting and making London's environment safer, healthier and less polluted."
