Bangladesh factory fire 'completely preventable'

Clare Lissaman, director at Ethical Fashion Forum, told ITV News that the fatal factory fire in Bangladesh was "completely preventable".

She said: "It wouldn't cost that much more to have buildings that were safe, workers that were paid properly, estimates are about 5p more per garment. I think we can have affordable garments that don't mean that people have to die."
