MPs have backed a call for Sir Philip Green to be stripped of his knighthood in the wake of the BHS scandal.

The motion is not binding as any final decision would have to be taken by the Honours Forfeiture Committee.

BHS was sold by Sir Philip last year, but then collapsed with the loss of 11,000 jobs and carrying a £571m pension deficit.
