Boris: 'We made grit-snow lasagne'


London Mayor, Boris Johnson has dismissed complaints about the way he dealt with the snowfall that took most of London's buses off the roads as "complete tripe" and "nonsense".

In a bad tempered session in front of the Transport select committee the Mayor repeatedly accused its members of party political bias.

Mr Johnson tried to walk out of the session after saying: "We created a lasagne of grit and snow".

Heavy snowfall on 2 February severely disrupted London's public transport.
