Watch as Sadiq Khan joins regional mayors Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram in giving evidence at the Covid-19 inquiry on Monday 27 November.

The appearance by the three Labour politicians kicks off a highly anticipated week at Lady Hallett’s probe, with former health secretary Matt Hancock and ex-deputy prime minister Dominic Raab among those giving evidence.

Mr Hancock in particular has faced repeated criticism from a number of witnesses before the inquiry, with the independent MP down to give evidence across Thursday and Friday.

Various witnesses have expressed concern about his performance as health secretary, with the inquiry hearing that the country’s most senior civil servant at the time, Lord Sedwill, wanted Mr Hancock sacked.

Mayor of Greater Manchester, Mr Burnham, and the mayor of London, Mr Khan are scheduled to give evidence on Monday morning, with Liverpool’s Metro mayor Mr Rotheram down to appear later in the afternoon.
