p We all know that Crossrail will bring some much-needed improvements to London's transport infrastructure.

The money needed is now looking troublesome as London finance firms consider moving to other EU destinations like Dublin, Frankfurt and Paris over Brexit.

The project would cost some £32bn and would need to be paid for from passenger tickets and business rates in the capital.

But London Mayor Sadiq Khan has claimed that London would "grind to a halt" without Crossrail 2.

The link would allow people in Wimbledon to get on a train and visit people in Broxbourne or Seven Sisters.

This journey currently takes nine weeks, requires a horse, lengthy walk through boggy woodland, a short swim and then a chain of buses.
