Morrisons confirm indirect link to Bangladesh factory

Morrisons, who were linked to the factory Bangladesh where nine garment workers were killed last night, told ITV News:

We are saddened by the events at the mill and our thoughts are with the families at this time.

We purchased garments from the Palmal company, which were produced at sites elsewhere in Bangladesh.

It’s likely that fabric from the Aswad Composite Knits fabric mill in Gazipur would have been used to supply the material to make some of those garments
