London mayor Boris Johnson has been caught on film swearing at a taxi driver.
Mr Johnson, who is also a Conservative MP, was involved in an altercation at traffic lights in the footage obtained by the Sun.
A source close to the mayor told BBC political correspondent Ross Hawkins it was “a colourful choice of language” .
But the source added: “He was giving as good as he got to a guy who heckles him regularly.”
It is understood the incident took place over a week ago.
The general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association, Steve McNamara, said: “This was an incident between two grown men.
“No children were about and no-one was offended. It’s a bit of a storm in the tea-cup.”
