Brian Paddick, the Lib Dem mayoral candidate, has launched an angry attack on Ken Livingstone. In a speech in Canary Wharf, Mr Paddick said his Labour opponent should be "ashamed" after the former mayor was reported to have made controversial comments about homosexuality and the Jewish community.
Mr Livingstone has said the homosexuality remark was actually a compliment and denied making the comment about the Jewish community.
Brian Paddick, the Liberal Democrat mayoral candidate, visited an estate in Islington with his leader Nick Clegg to promote his plans to reduce crime. The former Met officer wants to get communities to work closely with the police.
