Union leaders and politicians are demanding answers from Sports Direct over the way it treats its staff, after a woman gave birth in the toilets of its warehouse on New Year’s Day.

MPs and union leaders have raised concerns about health and safety practices at the Shirebrook-based company, owned by billionaire businessman and Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley.
