A major brewer has shelved plans to build a new national distribution centre in Northampton.

Carlsberg had planned to move its current centre from Swan Valley to the town's Brackmills Industrial Estate.

A spokesman for the company said the decision not to continue with the relocation plan was down to commercial considerations.

The Carlsberg brewery in Northampton says a new bottling plant opening in the town later this month will mean it can double production. It's the final part of a sixty million pound redevelopment which has taken two and a half years to complete and will create around thirty new jobs.
