Primark attacked for selling padded bikinis for kids
Primark has been accused of exploiting children over its decision to sell a padded bikini top for young girls.
The sale of the tops has fuelled fears that the young are being targeted with overly-sexualised fashion items at too young an age.
Child protection consultant Shy Keenan, of The Phoenix Chief Advocates which helps victims of paedophiles, said: "It never fails to amaze me just how many High Street household names are now prepared to exploit the disgusting 'paedophile pound'."
She added: "You should never sexualise children. Kids may be learning how to look sexy in an adult way but no one is teaching them what to do if they receive unwelcome robust adult attention."
