Tesco is among more than 100 companies which have been named and shamed by the government for failing to pay workers the minimum wage.

The supermarket giant was one of 139 employers on a list of firms which had short-changed staff.

In total, the companies failed to cough up £6.7m owed to some 95,000 employers between 2016 and 2018.
