The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has announced London's Living Wage is to rise by 25p an hour to £8.80.

The aim is to encourage companies to give employees in the capital a better standard of living, by paying around £2.50 an hour more than the minimum wage.

BBC London's political correspondent, Karl Mercer, spoke to bar-worker Lacey Green, Craig Beaumont from the Federation of Small Businesses and Neil Jameson from London Citizens.
