Primark case prompts shop action

Several high street chains are to review their product lines after Primark's decision to withdraw a padded bikini following claims it sexualised children. The Sun newspaper said Next, Tammy, Tesco and Peacocks stocked similar items, adding that Primark was also selling underwear aimed at young people bearing the phrase "You've scored". "We will look into the issue," Next chief executive Simon Wolfson said. "If anything needs changing we will do it immediately." Peacocks boss Richard Kirk added: "We have started checking every product top make sure everything is appropriate." Tesco, Tammy and Primark pledged similar action. Primark was yesterday forced to act after calls for a boycott of its stores by an organisation which helps child victims of abuse and following criticism from Conservative leader David Cameron. Child protection consultant Shy Keenan of The Phoenix Chief Advocates, which called for the boycott, welcomed the chain's decision to remove the padded bikini tops. Mr Cameron, who branded the sale "disgraceful" in an interview with BBC London Radio said he was "delighted" the bikini top had been withdrawn.
