by Matt Watts and Joseph Watts
New Tower Hamlets mayor John Biggs today vowed to clean up the scandal-hit London borough after clinching a dramatic election victory.
After sweeping to power he pledged to rid the council's cabinet of supporters of the disgraced former mayor Lutfur Rahman.
He defeated his rival Rabina Khan following a bitterly fought campaign, marred by fresh claims of malpractice and a police investigation.
