The mayor replied: "Nah, home is south London mate".

The mayor was received by officials from the Punjab government upon his arrival and is now holding a meeting with Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Model Town.

During the meeting held at his Model Town office in Lahore, Shahbaz Sharif welcomed Sadiq Khan and expressed hope that his visit further will further improve bilateral relations as well as business activities between Pakistan and the United Kingdom.

Commenting on the Mayor's response, Ms Pidgeon said: "Sadiq Khan likes to boast about the start of the London Overground night service but he can not hide away from the fact Londoners have always been promised a Boxing Day service on the London Overground".

Khan, earlier in the day, visited Golden Temple in Punjab.
