An Office of Fair Trading (OFT) investigation has prompted a change to the terms and conditions of the membership contracts for Virgin Active gym members.

The chain will relax its cancellation rules for members who have lost their jobs and relax the notice period required.

The news comes after months of controversy surrounding unfair gym contracts, with the OFT issuing a number of warnings to fitness centres across the country.
