London Mayor Boris Johnson today launched London Technology Week - a series of over 200 events over the coming days aimed at showcasing the capital's tech strengths.

Tens of thousands of technology entrepreneurs, investors and developers, together with some of the world's leading tech companies, will be brought together in what is the largest collection of tech events ever seen in Europe.
