Khan faces backlash after Mayor’s website says ‘white family’s aren’t real Londoners’

Sadiq Khan is facing calls to resign after the Mayor of London’s website said a photograph of a white family “doesn’t represent real Londoners”.

Mr Khan was forced to distance himself from the “inappropriate” comment, which formed part of an official guide to his and Greater London Authority (GLA) branding.

The document included various pictures as examples of what should and should not be used while marketing Mr Khan’s activities and the work of City Hall.

One of these depicted a young white family holding hands as they walked on the banks of the Thames in central London, with the London Eye and Parliament in the background. The image, which featured a mother and father smiling alongside their daughter and son, appeared alongside the caption: “Doesn’t represent real Londoners.”
