England football star Marcus Rashford vowed to keep campaigning to extend free school meals over the holidays after MPs voted against the measure.

The Manchester United player told politicians to "stop stigmatising, judging and pointing fingers" as he warned a "significant number" of children will go to bed hungry and "feeling like they do not matter" because of comments on Wednesday.

He called on people to "unite" to protect the most vulnerable children, adding: "For as long as they don't have a voice, they will have mine."

Rashford released a statement after Labour's motion, which called for the scheme to be extended over school holidays until Easter 2021, was defeated by 261 votes to 322 - majority 61.

Five Conservative MPs rebelled to support the motion, including Education Select Committee chairman Robert Halfon, but it was not enough.

The division list showed the other four were Caroline Ansell (Eastbourne), Jason McCartney (Colne Valley), Anne Marie Morris (Newton Abbot) and Holly Mumby-Croft (Scunthorpe).

Downing Street ruled out performing a late U-turn ahead of the vote, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson telling MPs that support will continue for children on low incomes.

"We will continue to use the benefits system and all the systems of income to support children throughout the holidays as well," he added.
