Boris takes City battle to Brussels

London Mayor Boris Johnson has been to Brussels to fight what he sees as an unfair clampdown on hedge fund traders.

He claims that the restrictions on hedge funds, private equity funds and venture capital will potentially cost thousands of jobs and result in businesses moving out of London, and perhaps out of the European Union altogether.

Michael Crick was hot on the heels of the London mayor.
