Ken Livingstone attempted to give his mayoral campaign a big boost this morning, unveiling his official election bus alongside the Labour leader Ed Miliband. The former mayor released a dossier claiming his manifesto would leave Londoners better off.

In particular, he highlighted the plan to cut transport fares in October - he claimed the average traveller would save £1000 over a four year mayoral term.

He also wants to bring back the Education Maintenance Allowance - the grant to help students go to college.

But Mr Livingstone also had to deny a story that he had told a members of the Jewish community that they would not vote for him because they were rich. He said the comment was part of the Conservative campaign against him.
