London - President Goodluck Jonathan arrived in London on Wednesday night at the start of a visit to the United Kingdom.

The western Europe correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Jonathan who is being accompanied on the visit by his wife, Patience was received on arrival by the Nigerian High Commissioner to Britain, Dr Dalhatu Tafida and officials for the commission.
