Bristol mayor George Ferguson is sworn in

Bristol mayor George Ferguson has been sworn in at a ceremony at Bristol Temple Meads railway station.

Mr Ferguson, an architect best known for wearing red trousers, won Thursday's poll with a total of 37,353 votes, ahead of Labour's Marvin Rees.

The 65-year-old said there had been an "extraordinary amount of enthusiasm" since his win and he aimed to "change the mood" of the city.
