Ken Livingstone visits Worcester Park

With the Worcester Park Ward by-election just days away and the Mayoral and Greater London Authority elections on the horizon, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone joined Labour's campaign trail in Worcester Park yesterday evening.

Mr Livingstone, pictured above at Worcester Park station with (left) Louisa Woodley Labour GLA candidate for Croydon and Sutton and (right) Hilary Hosking ,Labour's by-election candidate for Worcester Park Ward, spent time talking to local residents on their doorsteps about the cuts in Police numbers and the recent public transport fare rises as well as traffic and planning issues.

Labour by-election candidate Hilary Hosking told the Worcester Park Blog

"I was delighted Ken was able to come down to support my campaign as well as Louisa Woodley's campaign for the Croydon and Sutton GLA seat. Ken thinks Worcester Park, split between various boroughs, can seriously benefit from the work of the GLA in tackling wider crime and transport issues."
