Labour candidate for London mayor Ken Livingstone used a college in Greenwhich to launch his manifesto to reclaim the title from Boris Johnson.

Livingstone pledged to cut transport fares, rent and energy bills for London residents if he's voted in on Thursday 3 May.. He also promised to reintroduce an Education Maintenance Allowance of up to £30 to help students in the capital.

The focus of the campaign is the reduction of transport fares by 7% by the end of the year. Livingstone showed his commitment to the campaign by promising to resign as Mayor if he has not introduced the cuts within 5 months of being elected.

He stated the savings would be funded by a “completely unacceptable” surplus of cash held by Transport for London. He claimed a non-profit lettings agency would be the solution to reducing rents, while a co-operative would be created to cut “rip-off energy prices”.

The event also saw the 66-year-old wipe away tears at a screening of his campaign video, for which he received a pat on the back by Labour leader Ed Miliband.
