Morrisons faces women's equal pay action

Supermarket giant Morrisons is facing legal action by women who work in its stores.
The women, both current and former employees, say they are not paid the same as male workers who are doing comparable jobs.
Lawyers say that if the legal challenge is successful, thousands of women could receive back pay averaging £15,000.
But Morrisons said it believed the number of claimants was far smaller and that it would be contesting the case.
Rival Asda has suffered a series of setbacks in its own continuing legal dispute with staff over equal pay.
Another big supermarket, Tesco, is facing a similar court battle.
