Jeffrey Archer and Steven Norris are almost neck and neck in the race to be Conservative candidate for London mayor, a survey has revealed.

Eight people are vying to be Tory candidate, according to an official list released last week.

A survey for BBC Radio 4's Today programme revealed that millionaire novelist Lord Archer and former transport minister Mr Norris are out in front according to the party's constituency chairmen.

The survey, based on quizzing 53 of the 74 Tory constituency chairmen in London, found 17 Archer supporters, 15 for Norris and the rest supported other candidates.

The other Tory hopefuls are: former Brent LBC leader Robert Blackman, former Hillingdon LBC leader Andrew Boff, MP John Wilkinson, party officer Bernard Gentry, Patrick Ground QC and Mark Kotecha.
