Aspire 1. Inner east London; from Bethnal Green, Spitalfields and Wapping to Bow, Poplar and the Isle of Dogs. The population includes a very large proportion from Bangladeshi backgrounds. Controversial directly-elected Mayor Lutfur Rahman had his election overturned in April 2015 and John Biggs has held the post since then.
Aspire gained a seat from Labour in Shadwell on 7 February; Labour held Lansbury on the same day.
