Sadiq Khan poses in Ray-Bans as he meets rapper and snaps selfies at trendy London music festival

The Mayor of London was spotted wearing a pair of corporate giveaway sunglasses as he posed for selfies with admiring fans at a London music festival over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Sadiq Khan, 50, enjoyed some downtime with his wife, Saadiya, as he attended the All Point East festival in East London’s Victoria Park on Friday.

Mr Khan was dressed in casual clothes, pairing a navy blue Fred Perry jacket with matching slacks and finished off his look with a pair of gifted Ray-Ban glasses.

The eco-conscious mayor wore his environmental values on his chest at the festival, donning a black limited edition £25 Choose Earth t-shirt under his jacket.

Earlier in the day, the trendy mayor was seen making the most of the perks of the job as he picked out the pair of freebie designer sunglasses from the Ray-Ban tent at the festival.

He then wore his new gifted shades for the rest of the day out, and was seen taking several selfies with fellow revelers as well as posing for a snap with rapper Kojey Radical, who was performing at the festival.

The London rapper, 28, looked delighted to be meeting the mayor and posed with his arm draped around Sadiq as he flashed a peace sign for the camera. 

Khan strolled through the crowds with his wife and was spotted along with thousands of others as he listened to music on the first day of the much-anticipated outdoor music festival. 

This comes after Mr Khan announced plans earlier this week to help the city’s councils and housing associations support the arrival of Afghan refugees.

The London mayor said he will expand his new Right to Buy-back fund to help councils purchase homes which could be used to resettle families arriving from Afghanistan.

Housing associations are also being encouraged to apply for funding for suitable homes that can be delivered quickly.

Mr Khan said in a statement he would invite London councils to submit bids to his Right to Buy-back fund, which allows them to buy former council homes back from the private sector, with the programme to have a particular focus on family-sized homes.

Mr Khan announced the Right to Buy-back fund last month in a bid to help councils and council-owned housing companies acquire homes that would be let at social rent levels or used as accommodation for homeless families.

‘It has been devastating to watch the crisis unfold in Afghanistan and I’m determined to do everything in my power to support those escaping the country,’ Mr Khan said.

‘London has a proud history of providing sanctuary to those in need and by working together we can help these refugees find a welcoming home in our city.’

Several London boroughs have told the government they want to support those fleeing the brutal Taliban regime in Afghanistan and take in refugees.

Richmond, Camden, Ealing, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kingston, Lambeth, Islington and Lewisham are among the London boroughs to offer their support.
