MPs have accused the UK's top accountancy firms of 'feasting on the carcass' of the collapsed giant Carillion.
The Wolverhampton-based firm went into liquidation in January after falling more than £900 million in debt.
An inquiry into the firm's collapse has found that professional firms KPMG, PwC, Deliotte and EY pocketed a total of £71.6 million in Carillion-related work since 2008, including on its pension schemes.
Veteran Labour MP Frank Field, head of the Work and Pensions Committee, said:
PwC, which is handling the liquidation process, comes in for particular criticism, with Mr Field accusing the firm of playing "all three sides".
Since the collapse of Carillion, a total of 989 jobs have been lost, with 6,668 saved out of the previous directly-employed workforce of 18,000.
The role of auditors has come under the spotlight, with questions asked about why problems at the firm were not spotted sooner.
