Better rights for 2012 mechandise staff

London 2012 organisers, after a 'comprehensive review', are to introduce new measures to protect workers making Games merchandise after evidence of exploitation.

The group Labour Behind the Label claim to have uncovered evidence of child labour, excessive hours and dangerous working practices at two factories in China.

Now organisers have agreed to take steps to ensure workers making goods for this summer's event have their rights respected.
