Primark has announced that it will pay its suppliers in full for any outstanding finished garments and fabric costs incurred since its stores closed in March.

The fast-fashion retailer had already committed to paying in full for any items that were in production, finished or planned for handover by April 17.

Primark will be discussing the details of these payments on a one-to-one basis with suppliers in the coming weeks.
