Staff from the lingerie shop La Senza are staging the second night of a sit-in at its Liffey Valley store in a dispute over unpaid overtime.

The workers, who lost their jobs yesterday, say they are owed overtime payments for the month of December.

The store had 15 shops in Ireland and employed around 100 people.

The administrators KPMG said the staff who have been made redundant will be able to make a claim to a Government fund.

The workers and the trade union Mandate will meet KPMG tomorrow morning to discuss the issue.

60 La Senza shops in the UK will remain open after a rescue deal was struck.
