The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Business -

The an­nual pa­rade cel­e­brat­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the Lord Mayor of the City of Lon­don has been can­celled this year for the first time since 1852, due to “in­creas­ing con­cerns” over the pan­demic. The 2020 Lord Mayor’s Show was to be ded­i­cated to key work­ers. Lord Mayor Wil­liam Rus­sell in­tends to serve a sec­ond year for “con­ti­nu­ity”.
