BORIS Johnson, Mayor of London, paid a visit to Northwich this afternoon, Wednesday, to lend his support to the Conservative campaign in Weaver Vale.

Mr Johnson spent 30 minutes walking down Witton Street, taking selfies with town residents, while campaigning with Tory candidate Graham Evans.

A keen cyclist, Mr Johnson then hopped onto Guardian chief reporter Gina Bebbington's bike before heading to the Guardian office where he explained why townsfolk should vote for the Conservatives at the election next week.
