Simon Hughes launches mayoral manifesto

North Southwark's Lib Dem MP Simon Hughes toured London in an open-top bus on Monday to launch his manifesto for the forthcoming mayoral election.

Simon Hughes swapped his trademark orange taxi for an open-top Routemaster which took him on a route which included the former home of London government at County Hall and an excursion into his current parliamentary constituency.

His campaign manifesto, "For a London United", promises block further expansion of the congestion charge whilst offering motorists measures including five free trips into the charging zone and an earlier finish time to the charge.

The night before his manifesto launch Mr Hughes was at Christ Church and Upton Chapel in Kennington Road giving a talk about the impact of his Christian faith on his political activities.
