Primark investigates claim of 'cry for help' note in trousers

25 June 2014 Last updated at 18:43 BST

A shopper has claimed she found a "cry for help" note hidden inside a pair of trousers alleging slave labour conditions in a Chinese prison.

The note, wrapped in a prison identity card, claimed inmates were forced to work 15 hours a day making clothes.

Karen Wisínska said she bought the trousers in Primark's Belfast store in June 2011 but had never worn them. She discovered the note just last week.

She spoke to BBC News NI's Julian Fowler.
