Before the recent London Mayoral election I had the opportunity to shadow the Liberal Democrat candidate, Brian Paddick for about 10 days whilst he fought to become the first Liberal Democrat mayor of London. It wasn't to be, and Brian eventually finished fourth to Boris, Ken and the Green party's Jenny Jones.
Here are some of my photos from my time with him.
