Livingstone gameplan

FORMER London Mayor Ken Livingstone said Glasgow could learn some of the UK capital's lessons in cutting carbon emissions in the run-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The ex-Labour MP set out his vision for the city to delegates at a conference in the Royal Concert Hall, with the global low-carbon market expected to hit £4 trillion by 2016.

Under the Sustainable Glasgow initiative, the city aims to cut carbon emissions by 30% and become one of Europe's most sustainable cities within a decade.

Mr Livingstone said: "I believe Glasgow can learn some of the lessons from London. The Olympics have left a lasting legacy for London and Glasgow will get its own opportunity with the Commonwealth Games."
