Andrew was given the freedom of the city of York in 1987, shortly after his marriage to Sarah Ferguson.

York City Council voted to remove his status as an Honorary Freeman in an extraordinary council meeting.

One speaker described the Duke as an “utter disgrace who brings shame wherever he goes. He needs to be declared persona non grata in York”.

York town hall chief Darryl Smalley said: “The removal of this honorary title sends the right message that we as a city stand with victims of abuse.

“The next logical step is now for Prince Andrew to do the right thing and relinquish his Duke of York title.

“If he fails to do so, Buckingham Palace must step in to remove his title to finally end Prince Andrew’s connection to York.”
