    London Mayor Sadiq Khan promises to "strain every sinew to help build a better and brighter future for London after the dark days of the pandemic".

    "I am proud to have won an overwhelming mandate today," he says.

    Addressing those Londoners who didn't vote for him he says: "I will never ignore your voice, your concerns or your worries."

    He says the city and the country are divided - "the scars of Brexit remain, a crude culture war is pushing us further apart," he adds.

    "We must use this moment of national recovery to heal those divisions.

    "Coronavirus doesn't care if you are a Brexiteer, a Remainer or woke."

    He says it is better to build bridges rather than walls and promises to "build bridges between City Hall and the government".
