MANCHESTER - Embattled British fast fashion brand Boohoo has appointed a leading barrister who specialises in business crime to head an independent investigation into pay and conditions at its supply factories in Leicester.

Alison Levitt QC will begin work immediately on the probe which will examine allegations that garment workers are paid as little as £3.50 per hour and that factory conditions contributed to a coronavirus spike that has seen the city forced back into lockdown.

It comes after Boohoo was dropped by three major retailers Asos, Next and Zalando, over the allegations and the company had more than £1.5 billion wiped off its stock market value.
