Mike Ashley, the embattled billionaire founder of retail giant Sports Direct, was filmed pulling a huge stack of 50 notes out of his pocket as he entered one of his warehouses, which have been previously described by politicians as "Victorian workhouses."
Ashley is hosting Sports Direct's annual general meeting at Shirebrook on Wednesday, and as part of the day, the company's majority shareholder is taking investors and members of the press on a tour of the warehouse facility that has been at the centre of a scandal surrounding working conditions and low pay within the company.
As Ashley entered the warehouse, he, like all other visitors, was subject to a search procedure and required to empty his pockets. Along with his phone and a few bits of paper, Ashley appeared to have a surprisingly large number of 50 notes in his trouser pocket:
As he did so, a reporter commented: "There's a lot of cash there!" Ashley quickly replied by joking that he'd "just been to the casino."
Buzzfeed's Simon Neville managed to get a video of the incident, which you can see below:
