Boris Johnson took aim at London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the House of Commons following an end to a potential new congestion charge. Mr Johnson defended this new plan and insisted the financial state of the transport network in London was the responsibility of Sadiq Khan. He insisted the mayor had bankrupted the service long before the coronavirus crisis had struck. 

He said: “I must inform the honourable lady that the current mayor of London has effectively bankrupted TfL before coronavirus even hit.

“He left a massive black hole in its finances and any need to make up that deficit is entirely down to him.
