MPs have voted against an opposition motion calling on the government to disclose papers on Windrush migrants.

Labour had hoped to force the government to publish documents about its immigration policy relating to people who came to the UK from Commonwealth countries.

They arrived between the late 1940s and 1970s but some have been threatened with deportation in recent years.

The government won the vote by 316 votes to 221.
