Labour must 'reach beyond its own activists'

Newly elected London mayor Sadiq Khan said Labour must "reach beyond its own activists" if it wishes to win a general election.

Mr Khan said internal party squabbles "mean little or nothing to the huge majority of voters", while he also criticised the Conservative electoral campaign - comparing it to something "straight out the Donald Trump playbook".

On Saturday, Mr Khan was elected mayor, having received a total of 1,310,143 votes, with his closest rival, Conservative Zac Goldsmith, receiving 994,614 votes.

Sadiq Khan elected as Mayor of London

Labour's Sadiq Khan has won the London mayoral election, beating Conservative rival Zac Goldsmith.

Mr Khan took 1,310,143 votes after second preference votes were taken into account, while Mr Goldsmith took 994,614.

The Tooting MP had been the frontrunner in the counting process from early on, but final confirmation of his victory was delayed for several hours due to "discrepancies" in the ballot counting.

Speaking after the announcement of his win, Mr Khan said he was "humbled" by the result, and promised "to always be a mayor for all Londoners".

He said: "I'm so proud that Londoners have today chosen hope over fear and unity over division."
