Leighton Hospital could struggle to close the gender pay gap due to the number of female nurses they employ, trust bosses have claimed.

The news comes after a report by Johnston Press - the parent company of The News, Portsmouth - revealed a mean gender pay gap of 15.1 per cent, as well as more males than females in management roles and a predominantly male Senior Management Team.

The government has taken this step in a hope that embarrassing by shaming the companies with large pay gaps will force them to take steps to tackle the pay gap.

At first glance, it appears that Amazon's United Kingdom gender pay gap is significantly better than many of its rivals in the tech sector. For the median figure - halfway between the highest and lowest - the pay gap is 21%.

According to the figures women's mean hourly rate is 36% lower than men's.

These roles also attract higher bonuses and stock options, which consequentially affects the organisation's bonus gender pay gap too. There will be women all over the country who are quite simply being cheated out of what they are entitled to or men who are being over-rewarded.

Another said their "clearly was a pay gap" and that because the Indy is "liberal leaning it seems at odds with the stories they write about".

Nearly all of the East Anglian companies required to report revealed a pay gap favouring men, with construction group Breheny, audio visual firm Midwich and insurance giant Aviva revealing some of the biggest gaps.

Britain could be facing another Pippa Middleton moment, which saw the Duchess of Cambridge's sister's bum beamed across the globe. Princess Zara Tindall, who is also pregnant, arrived at the chapel without her husband Mike Tindall and daughter Mia Grace.

Although NHS England stressed that this was "not the same as saying men and women are paid differently for doing the same job", which "would be an equal pay issue", it did acknowledge the issue of men occupying more senior posts.

Niki Kandirikiria, director of programmes at Equality Now, hopes that companies with large pay gaps will take it on themselves to analyse what is causing the discrepancy and what they can do to adjust it. The club's median gender pay gap is 31%.

The civil service gender pay gap stands at 12.7 per cent and the public sector as a whole at 19.4 per cent.

Companies with 250 employees or more must submit their median and mean pay gap data to the Government Equalities Office by midnight on 4 April. The bonus gap was 30.4% (median) and 49.2% (mean). Having more men in higher-paid roles has affected its pay gap, resulting in the undesirable final figures.

First Minister Carwyn Jones has asked the leader of the house to undertake "a rapid review" of gender and equality policies "to bring a new impetus to our work in this area".

How big is the pay gap at.?

CH4 Gas Utility said it had identified two reasons - more men than women in senior roles and more men than women working within the engineering industry.
