Boris Johnson has revealed he found out that the proposed route for Crossrail 2 will go 20 metres under his house when he received a letter from himself.

The proposed route will run 20 metres under Boris Johnson's £3 million Islington home and he says he hasn't yet dared to tell his wife! Crossrail 2 launched a consultation last month and the project expects to boost the economy by £1.2bn, creating thousands of new jobs.
