Sadiq Khan was accused of 'getting rich by suing the police today' as the fight to become London mayoral vote on Thursday heated up.

Tory candidate Shaun Bailey launched an attack on the Labour incumbent's record on crime in the capital in a new election broadcast.

It accuses Mr Khan of earning £1.3million in eight years from 328 legal cases brought against the Metropolitan Police between 1996 and 2004.

The Shaun Bailey campaign cites a freedom of information request that showed Mr Khan's former firm, Christian Khan, earned this money while he was a partner before being elected Tooting MP in 2005.

In the new video, Mr Bailey speaks to a victim of crime in London - who is also a Conservative councillor in Barnet -  and question's Mr Khan's credentials to oversee the Metropolitan Police.  

'The mayor of London is the police and crime commissioner for London,' he says.

'It makes me wonder: does he have the right values for Londoners, to make us safe?'
