Your chance to quiz the seven top candidates running for Mayor of London in May is here.

Over the last few weeks, we have been collating your questions for the people hoping to replace Boris Johnson and take the capital’s top job.

You told us you wanted to ask questions about topics such as homelessness, the minimum wage and health – and a selection of the best, taken straight from your messages, will be posed from 6pm in our online hustings.

Frontrunners Sadiq Khan (Labour) and Zac Goldsmith (Con) will be joined by Caroline Pidgeon (Lib Dem), Sian Berry (Green), Peter Whittle (Ukip), George Galloway (Respect) and Sophie Walker (Women’s Equality Party).

They will have up to five minutes to answer each question as fully as possible.

You’ll be able to read a transcript of the hour-long event right here from 7pm – or you can pick up this week’s paper for a quick read of the highlights.

The London mayoral election will take place on May 5.
