Poll boosts mayor's re-election
A new poll suggests Ken Livingstone's chances of being re-elected as Mayor of London were boosted when he rejoined the Labour party.

Some 1,007 adults were interviewed three weeks after Mr Livingstone rejoined Labour, 50% of whom said they would support the mayor on 10 June.

Steve Norris, the Conservatives' candidate, received 29% and Liberal Democrat Simon Hughes got 18%.

Turn-out is expected to drop by 5% on the mayoral elections in 2000 to 29%.

According to the poll, commissioned by independent election campaign group Mind the Gap and carried out by ICM, there was 3% support for the other candidates.
