Milkman Boris saves the day

Mayor of London Boris Johnson turned milkman on Friday by delivering a pint for thirsty BBC London 94.9 staff.

Mr Johnson was coming in to the station's new Broadcasting House home in Portland Place for his regularly phone-in on Vanessa Feltz's morning show.

But staff had run out of milk for their morning tea after moving into the new studio only days ago and had still to set up a regular delivery.

So, newsreader Jason Rosam sent a message via Twitter which read: "Could you please bring some milk into our new studios when you come in later please? We desperately need some tea!"

Mr Johnson spotted the request and obliged by bringing in a pint of semi-skimmed.
