A multi-million pound deal has been signed to redevelop the site of the former Terry's chocolate factory in York. Two of Britain's leading property companies have bought the factory and hope work can start on building two hundred and seventy new homes there as soon as the summer.

It is hoped two hundred construction jobs will be created and there are also plans for offices, hotels and shops on the site.
