Former workers from Moben Kitchens have demonstrated outside the collapsed firm's headquarters in Trafford Park over claims they have not been paid.

Its parent company Homeform, which also owns Kitchens Direct, Dolphin and Sharps, went into voluntary administration two weeks ago.

Staff say they have not been made formally redundant and that they are owed wages.

The company has yet to comment on the protesters' claims.

No communication

Former telesales worker for Moben, Christine Davis, said: "We were all told to just get our coats and leave. Some of us are owed up to six weeks wages.

"It's 12 days since they went into voluntary administration and there has been no communication with us.

"We haven't been made officially redundant, so we can't even claim benefits. We're all in limbo."

At the protest in Greater Manchester on Tuesday, Moben worker Emma Phillips said: "There are people here with mortgages, babies, things to pay out and we haven't had a penny."

Homeform is owned by private equity group Sun Capital Partners and has 160 showrooms across the UK.

It had a workforce of more than 1,300 people in its showrooms and an additional 1,500 fitters and designers.
