London, July 28 (ANI): Swedish clothing company H and M has stated that it is taking claims of its staff members having sex romps in the stock room and staff room "extremely seriously", and is launching an investigation into it.
The story about the H and M shop workers in Cardiff indulging in sexual activities just yards from their customers came to light after a source at the Welsh shop contacted a local newspaper, and described what was allegedly going on behind the "staff only" doors.
"Staff have been actively engaging in sexual activities throughout the working day, often with customers no more than a few feet away," Sky News quoted the source as telling Wales on July 26.
"Some staff are regularly taking breaks to the staff room, toilets, stock room and even the shop floor to carry out these scandalous activities," the source said.
A spokeswoman for H and M said that there would be a thorough investigation into the matter.
"H and M is investigating these unacceptable allegations regarding our Cardiff store," she said.
"No H and M employees in the Cardiff store have been dismissed, however we take all allegations extremely seriously," she stated.
The Cardiff store manager, who would only give her name as Debra, refused to discuss the sexual allegations.
"I don't really have any comment I'm afraid," she said before hanging up. (ANI)
