Staff at B&Q stores in Nottinghamshire have been told to read Fifty Shades of Grey - in case of a rise in demand for rope and cables ties for kinky sex games inspired by the release of a film version of the book.

A leaked memo says staff at the DIY chain should be “sensitive” to customer questions about such products, which could be used in sexual role play.

The memo says: “All staff are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the content of Fifty Shades of Grey by reading the novel or watching the film upon its release.

“Understanding the storyline and how some products that B&Q stock feature in the film will better prepare staff for incoming queries.

“We stock many of the products featured in this notable scene and then used later in the film.

“When the book was released in 2012 DIY and hardware stores in the UK and US reported increased demand of certain products and queries from customers as they tried to recreate their own Fifty Shades experiences.

“We need to be prepared for the same effect when the film is released.”

B&Q has premises in Mansfield, Mansfield Woodhouse, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Worksop, Eastwood and across the region.
