Workers 'forced to sign for non-existent safety training'

Workers are being coached by managers to lie to auditors when they inspect a factory and in secret filming evidence was seen that workers said they were forced to sign a register to record that they had completed non-existent safety training.

During one shift at Vase, a factory official asks workers to sign a register to record they had completed certain training courses.

But one worker is told this system is also being abused during undercover filming as the worker who signs has received no training.

Mosque condemns underage marriage

Abdul Kashem, a trustee of the Al Quba Mosque and Shahporan Islamic centre, in Manchester, condemned underage marriage.

His comments came after an ITV Exposure programme spoke to a man at the mosque claiming to be the Imam who said he would be willing to perform an Islamic marriage for a 14-year-old girl.

However Mr Kashem said the name mentioned in the report "doesn't belong to us".

He added: "It's an open office. It's a mosque. It's not something private and locked up. During the praying hours there are hundreds of people that come here. I don't know how old this guy is and it could be age differences and maybe making fun out of it."

Jimmy Savile 'involved in every single element of society'

Criminologist Mark Williams-Thomas has told Daybreak that Jimmy Savile got involved in every single element of society.

He said: "He organised it in such a way that it always gave him access to children or the opportunity to offend."

Williams-Thomas however admitted that some of the charity work Savile did was geniune.

He said: "The problem was that you don't know where you draw that line in respect whether is was genuine or whether it was for an alternative motive."
