Too many redirects error after defining a redirect in Web.config

I have an ASP.NET MVC (5) application and need to redirect urls such as


I've defined a redirect in Web.config in

<rule name="london">
<match url="london" />
<action type="Redirect" url="locations/london" />

localhost redirected you too many times. ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS

What am I doing wrong?
