Angry taxi driver confronts Sadiq Khan

A bystander who identified himself as a taxi driver but would not give his name heckled London mayor Sadiq Khan, blaming him for stifling business in the capital by "shutting it down" via his transport policies.

The man was applauded by other taxi drivers and passers-by in Oxford Circus, central London, where Mr Khan had been greeting staff at Selfridges department store.

When asked about the incident during an interview later that day, the London Mayor said he sympathises with black cab drivers but stands by his stance to keep many central London roads pedestrianised.
