London Mayor 2016: Sadiq Khan to be Labour candidate

Labour members have chosen Sadiq Khan as their candidate for the 2016 London mayoral contest.

The Tooting MP came top in a poll of six, where former minister Tessa Jowell, who came second, had been seen as the frontrunner.

Other candidates were Diane Abbott, David Lammy, Christian Wolmar and Gareth Thomas.

Mr Khan later confirmed that he would stand down as an MP if was elected Mayor.
