Theresa May is facing mounting pressure to intervene over Sir Philip Green’s knighthood after members of her Cabinet said it was a "disgrace".

The Government is under pressure to ask the forfeiture committee to examine whether he should lose his knighthood, awarded by Tony Blair’s Labour government in 2006.

One Cabinet minister told The Daily Telegraph: "It is clearly the case that he is beyond the pale and shouldn’t have been honoured for his contribution in the first place."
