The travel giant went into liquidation last month leaving 150,000 holidaymakers stranded abroad and leading to 9,000 job losses.

Today the company's former boss, Peter Fankhauser, was questioned by a cross-party committee of MPs over what exactly what led to its liquidation last month.

Since then rival firm Hays Travel announced it will take over more than 500 outlets, potentially saving two and a half thousand jobs.
