Tesco chairman denies inappropriate touching

A report in the Guardian newspaper alleges that John Allan touched a Tesco employee at the supermarket giant's shareholder meeting last year. Mr Allan said that the claims are "Simply untrue" and Tesco said it has not received any complaints. The supermarket giant - which Mr Allan has chaired for eight years - told the BBC that in relation to his conduct at Tesco annual general meeting last year "It has received no complaints or concerns formally or informally, including through our confidential Protector Line service". Mr Allan is also chairman of Barratt Developments, the housebuilder.
