Post Office scandal: Anger grows as MPs return from recess

Public and political calls for redress for the victims of the Post Office scandal continue to grow as MPs return from their Christmas recess.

The prime minister and the Labour leader have joined calls for Paula Vennells to be stripped of her CBE, as a petition calling for the former Post Office CEO to lose the honour surpasses one million signatures.

On a visit to Lancashire on Monday, Rishi Sunak said he wanted to speed up the compensation process for victims. Meanwhile, Sir Keir Starmer, a former head of the Crown Prosecution Service, has called for prosecution powers to be taken away from the Post Office.
