Sadiq Khan has been elected the new Mayor of London - boosting Labour after it slumped in Scotland's elections.

Khan is the city's first Muslim mayor, after beating Tory Zac Goldsmith by 1, 310,143 votes to 994, 614.

The result bolsters leader Jeremy Corbyn after Labour were beaten into third in Scotland by the Tories and lost some English councilors.

In Scotland, the SNP said it would form a minority government after winning its third election in a row.
