Ian Clement, the deputy mayor for government and external relations, was forced to quit over misuses of his corporate credit card, becoming the fifth senior aide to resign or be fired since the mayor came to office last year.


Last July, Ray Lewis quit as deputy mayor for young people after allegations of financial irregularities and inappropriate behaviour. A month later, Tim Parker, the former AA chief executive who became first deputy mayor and Transport for London chairman, stood down after it was decided he held posts with too much responsibility for an unelected official.

David Ross, the former Olympics adviser, quit after he was forced to stand down as deputy chairman of Carphone Warehouse after belatedly disclosing he had pledged shares in the company as security against personal loans. James McGrath, the mayor’s chief political adviser, also had to go after suggesting African-Caribbean Londoners could leave if they did not like the capital under Mr ­Johnson. / World - Third deputy mayor quits Johnson’s administration
