The stand’s sign up and vox pop areas were flat out throughout the week, with queues often forming for both.

A message from Boris

I’m about to go on stage to address the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester. In my speech I’ll be setting out my vision for London and talking about what we’ve achieved over the last three years – including cutting crime, investing in our transport system, and freezing council tax.
