Boris picks World Expo shortlist

The Mayor of London has shortlisted Barking Riverside and the Royal Docks as potential locations for World Expo 25.

He has also shortlisted Meridian Water, in Enfield, and the site of Heathrow Airport (should it close) as his team look at plans to bring the event to London in 2025, for the first time in over 150 years.

The Evening Standard reports the potential regeneration opportunities for each area, or a combination of them, would be on the scale seen around the Olympic park.
