FURTHER calls have been made for former Sheffield Tory MP Sir Irvine Patnick to be stripped of his knighthood over his part in the smearing of Liverpool fans.

Labour MP Steve Rotheram said the forfeiture committee should examine the honour.

Sir Irvine, who still lives in Sheffield, was revealed as one of the sources behind controversial media coverage of the tragedy in which fans were blamed for the disaster.
