Footage of women undressing in Polish Tesco changing room posted on the internet

Tesco has promised a full investigation after changing room footage of scantily clad women in one of its Polish stores was posted on the internet.

The company said it was “appalled” by the film, which includes a running commentary, and is thought to have been shot by security guards at the store in Gorzow, western Poland.

The footage reportedly shows a girl under the age of 16 trying on a bra, and another young woman trying on a swimsuit. It is thought the footage was filmed during a summer sale period when the store had erected temporary changing rooms without a roof.

A spokeswoman for Tesco in the UK told Personnel Today: “We are appalled by this incident and we are currently assisting the police with their investigation. Tesco complies with Polish law and does not permit the use of CCTV footage in any of its changing facilities.”

Robert Polis, a customer at Tesco’s Gorzow store, told a local newspaper he was angered by the film. “If I found out that someone had taken those sorts of pictures of my wife, I would give them a kick in the face,” he said.

The retail giant, which has 107 stores in Poland employing more than 20,000 staff, was accused earlier this year of treating workers in its Polish stores “like criminals”. Shop-floor workers said they were subjected to “rough and humiliating” body searches and “aggressive and degrading” behaviour from store managers.
