    The European Parliament has voted in favour of capping bankers' bonuses.

    It is part of a wide-ranging new financial reform law under which EU banks will be forced to boost the cash reserves they have to hold as a cushion against economic shocks.

    The cap - which is due to come into force from the start of next year - will limit bonuses to no more than to one year's base salary.
