Boris Johnson: Blackfriars Station is as clean as a Swiss maternity ward

Blackfriars Underground station, shut for nearly three years, finally reopened today after a spectacular redevelopment.

The work has been part of the redevelopment of Blackfriars main line station which, in turn, is part of the Bedford to Brighton Thameslink rail project.

He added: "the rebirth of this central London station will improve the journeys of thousands of passengers every single day."
