London mayor calls for second Brexit referendum

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Mayor of London Sadiq Khan on Sunday (September 16) said the British public should have a say on the otucome of Brexit negotiations, including the option of "staying in the EU" after a second referendum.

Khan told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that Britain was now facing either a bad deal or a no-deal Brexit, both of which would be "hugely damaging to London and our country." Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29.
