Topshop owner Arcadia signs up to Bangladesh deal

Retail group Arcadia - which owns Topshop - have said they too have signed up to a deal on better safety checks in Bangladesh, but they sounded less than pleased that they only received a final copy of the accord late last night.

They added that Topshop has only bought £25,000 worth of goods from Bangladesh so far this year.

It follows commitments by several large retailers including Primark, H&M and Tesco to sign the accord.
