JD Sports and Asos have been accused of running their warehouses like "satanic mills" after figures showed the number of ambulance callouts to their sites.

Ambulances were dispatched 40 times to JD Sports' troubled Rochdale site last year, while there were 45 callouts to the Asos warehouse in Grimethorpe.

Union Unite said the figures reignited concerns about working conditions.

Both employers emphasised the importance they placed on the health and safety of all staff.

The figures, based on Freedom of Information requests, showed that ambulances were called out to the Rochdale warehouse 117 times over the past three years and 148 times to the Asos site in South Yorkshire.
