Secret documents spark new questions for Sadiq Khan over Crossrail delay

Sadiq Khan's oversight of the Crossrail fiasco was called into question today as secret documents revealed his spin doctors were drafting crisis plans almost a fortnight before the date on which he claims he discovered the line would not open on time.

Documents obtained by the Evening Standard under Freedom of Information laws show the first of 10 draft press releases, announcing the axing of last December’s royal opening, were sent by Crossrail to Transport for London on August 17 last year.

This was 12 days before the Mayor says he was told the cross-London rail line could not open as planned.
