London mayoral candidate George Galloway has claimed he has no memory of meeting an IS recruiter thought to have campaigned alongside him for a pro-Palestinian group.

Alexe Kotey is believed to have travelled to Gaza in February 2009 on an aid convoy organised by the 'Viva Palestina' group, led by the former MP.

The campaign group claimed the convoy took more than £1 million in aid to the region, including ambulances, medicine and food.

Mr Galloway today told ITV News he does not remember meeting Kotey.

A spokesman said: "There were 500 people on that convoy and George can't ever remember laying eyes on this guy. It's possible he was there but George doesn't remember meeting him."
