Election 2017: ‘An astonishing night’, says Sadiq | London

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said it had been an astonishing night in British politics – and he congratulated Jeremy Corbyn – “who ran a fantastic campaign”.

I’m particularly delighted by Labour’s brilliant results in London and I’d like to pay tribute to all our great Labour candidates and all those who worked so hard to get them elected.

It could now take some time for the make up of the next government to be confirmed.

City Hall will continue to operate as normal throughout this period – and as Mayor, I will continue to manage our transport and policing services.

My message to Londoners, visitors and businesses based around the world is that our city remains very much open for business.

I can promise Londoners that, regardless of who can command a majority in Parliament, I will work closely with Downing Street to secure the best possible deal for our capital on issues including the safety of our city, police funding, Crossrail 2 and air quality.

– Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
