The Conservative candidate for mayor promised to "put things right in London".

Hall said: "Let's start with the Ulez expansion.

"That has been a catastrophe for so many families in outer London - for charities, small businesses.

"Some of the emails I am getting are heartbreaking.

"People want to know how they're going to get to work. How they're going to get to hospital. They all say that Rishi Sunak is on the side of motorists.

"It's not just that. He is - thank goodness, and common sense is reigning - but he's on the side of all of us.

"He wants to make life easier for us."

She continued: "Sadiq Khan I think he would prefer to be spending his time writing another book, visiting cannabis factories, whatever.

"So I'm going to help him out.
