Newly elected mayor Sadiq Khan said he "can't quite believe the last 24 hours" as he was sworn in at Southwark Cathedral.
Introduced by Doreen Lawrence, applause erupted as he opened by saying: "My name is Sadiq Khan and I'm the mayor of London."
I'm determined to lead the most transparent, engaged and accessible administration London has ever seen, and represent every single community and every single part of our city as mayor for all Londoners.
I promise you that I’ll always do everything in my power to make our city better.
