Tooting MP Sadiq Khan got a soaking last night, after being nominated for the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The shadow justice secretary took up the challenge for MND Association outside Tooting Broadway Tube station.

And there could be something interesting to watch out for, after Mr Khan nominated London Mayor Boris Johnson to endure the frosty flooding.

Mr Khan said: “Like everyone else, I have been watching people take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge over the last couple of weeks. I was desperately hoping I didn’t get a nomination. But when I received the nomination from the team at south London MND, I just couldn’t say no.

“As a long term supporter, and patron of the charity, I have seen first-hand the fantastic work they do supporting local people with Motor Neurone Disease. I’m happy to do what I can to help raise awareness of the disease the charities working hard to support those affected by it.

“While I can’t say I enjoyed the Ice Bucket Challenge, I hope it helps raise much-needed funds for a good cause. Show your support for the MND Association by texting ICED55 £5 to 70070.

“I hope Robert Lindsay, Chris Grayling and Boris Johnson accept my challenge.”

Evelyn, a south London MND volunteer said: “When I took on the Ice Bucket Challenge, I knew I had to nominate our south London MND patron and local MP, Sadiq Khan.

“It has been great to see him be such a good sport and agree to have buckets of ice thrown over him – he even let me throw the first one! Not only that, but he has helped to raise awareness and important funds for the charity. Thank you.”
