Boris confirms he does not want to become Prime Minister

Boris Johnson has said that he does not want to become Prime Minister and that his focus is on London, where he has a "massive challenge" set for the next four years.

When asked on radio whether he wanted to become Prime Minister he said the answer is "categorically no".

"Everybody knows that the mayoralty of London is simply the most wonderful and challenging and fascinating job in British politics. I can say categorically that the answer to that is no I don't want to do that. London's got an amazing future, I'd be absolutely crazy not to want to focus on that and that's what I want to do."
