St Paul’s Cathedral played host to an interfaith event on Tuesday to mark Ramadan.

Bishop of London Rt Rev Sarah Mullally and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan welcomed a host of young people from different religions ahead of an Iftar where Muslims break their fast.

Speaking to Premier at the event, Mr Khan said: “I want to pay huge tribute to the Bishop of London and everyone at St Paul’s Cathedral for opening up this really special cathedral and spiritual home of many Londoners.

“As a city, we don’t just tolerate difference, but we respect it, celebrate it and we embrace it.”

“The message from London is that we are going to put down bridges rather than build walls.”
