Brian Paddick, former deputy assistant commissioner at the Met, has been selected as Lib Dem candidate for Mayor in a ballot of party members, reports the BBC.

He said "less crime, better transport, cleaner air and fewer Londoners living in poverty" was crucial for the city.

Mr Paddick's selection clarifies the dynamics of the race, with him facing off against the incumbent Labour candidate, Ken Livingstone, the Conservative candidate, Boris Johnson, and Sian Berry fighting for the Greens.

Now we have reached this stage LondonUnlocked will closely follow the developments of the race, reporting and commenting on any transport initiatives which these politicians suggest. If you have any ideas which you would like LondonUnlocked to pass to the candidates, please do get in touch.
