Boris Johnson is coming under pressure to confirm when he first heard the Ray Lewis allegations, after a number of reports contradicted his Deputy's claims.
Yesterday, Lewis claimed that he had only heard the allegations that same day. But according to the Daily Mail, Boris Johnson's legal team sought legal advice on the claims last week.
Speaking on Channel Four News last night, the Bishop of Chelmsford also claimed that City Hall had been made aware of the claims when Ray Lewis was first appointed two months ago.
And in an interview with the Daily Mirror Lewis himself states that he "became aware of this growing conspiracy quite a while ago."
But with so many contradictions in the story, and with threats of legal action being made to media outlets by City Hall, it may be some time before the truth becomes clear.
