London mayor election LIVE: Latest results and scoreboard for Sadiq Khan and Shaun Bailey
The London mayoral election appears to be closer than anticipated, as Labour brace for a tight finish. Londoners across the city voted for their favourite candidates on Thursday May 6, with the final result expected this weekend.
Labour’s Sadiq Khan – the former MP for Tooting – has been the mayor of London for the past five years.

He’s bidding for another four years in charge, and is narrowly ahead in the race.

Khan was expected to completely wipe the floor with the other candidates, but the Conservatives’ Shaun Bailey has drawn more votes than anticipated.

Bailey has already won in both Ealing and Hillingdon, and Brent and Harrow – both of which were under Labour control five years ago.

But, we won’t know for sure who’s won the keys to City Hall until at least Saturday night – possibly from 8.30pm.

Vote counting has been taking longer this year to cater for Covid restrictions.
