Black Friday protests at Amazon against worker conditions

There have been protests in the UK and elsewhere in Europe outside Amazon distribution centres over working conditions.

    There have been protests in the UK and elsewhere in Europe outside Amazon distribution centres over working conditions. A UK union has described them as inhuman. The protests were timed to coincide with "Black Friday" which is the biggest shopping day of the year.

    Emma Hayward reports from central England.

    Correction: In a previous version of this story we said Amazon workers in the UK and elsewhere in Europe have been demonstrating outside distribution sites over working conditions. We want to make it clear that it was the GMB union at Milton Keynes where we filmed who were protesting. Not workers. We apologize for any misunderstanding.
