Cheap clothing in Brent Cross shops, and the factories that produce some of it

Link to The Guardian

"Primark, Tesco and Marks & Spencer were among 20 retailers summoned to a UK government summit, as ministers sought steps to prevent a repeat of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh that killed over 1,000 people.

"The government wants to use its muscle to help drive up standards in factories supplying UK retailers, after the disaster at a complex that supplied clothing bought by British shoppers.

"About 20 retailers, including Primark, which bought clothing from a factory within Rana Plaza, Tesco, Marks & Spencer and Topshop's owner, Arcadia, were called into the Department for International Development (DfID) on Wednesday to discuss how to avoid another catastrophe in future."
