Mayor: Too early to restrict additions to skyline

London Mayor Boris Johnson says it's too early to draw any conclusions on whether there should be more restrictions on additions to the capital's skyline

"What we're going to be doing now - the Air Accidents Investigation Branch of the CAA is going to be looking at all those kinds of questions''

"Was that in any way responsible for the crash? Clearly, we'll want to study that and form our conclusions. I think it's all a bit premature, frankly."

– London Mayor Boris Johnson

The Mayor was speaking in Croydon, south London, after announcing a £1 billion investment for a redevelopment plan in the area.
