The shortlist for the Tory nomination for Mayor of London has been announced.

Mark Wallace, the executive editor of influential Tory blog ConservativeHome, tweeted on Saturday afternoon that Richmond MP Zac Goldsmith, London MEP Syed Kamall, GLA member Andrew Boff and deputy mayor for policing and crime Stephen Greenhalgh have made the shortlist.
