Sadiq Khan has spoken movingly about needing round the clock police protection because of “the colour of his skin and the god he worships.”

The London Mayor said he was given the confidence to talk about the threats and vitriol he receives for the first time after seeing the response to Marcus Rashford and the England team speaking out about racism.

Speaking at Labour Party Conference, he revealed he rejected a police protection detail when he was first elected Mayor of London, because he likes using the tube and walking around in the capital.
