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's first public engagement since being installed as Mayor of London on Saturday will be at a Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony.

Mr Khan will appear at the event in Barnet, north London, alongside a number of prominent figures in the Jewish community to commemorate the millions slaughtered during the Nazi genocide.

Up to six millions Jews are known to have been killed in the Holocaust during the Second World War.

The appearance comes after Mr Khan took a strong stance against anti-Semitism during the racism scandal which engulfed the Labour Party in recent weeks.
