Mr Johnson also made a video in which he declared his endorsement, saying: “Hi folks, I’m Boris Johnson, I’m Mayor of London, and I’m backing Wilford for a fresh start as Mayor of Tower Hamlets.”
Mr Wilford, who lives in Bow, said: “It is great to have Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, backing my campaign.
“From cleaning up rubbish to making housing work, we need a long term plan to deliver a better deal for residents.
