Brewery giant Carlsberg is planning to double the capacity of its national distribution warehouse in Northampton, creating fifty new jobs. The company want to move the warehouse from Swan Valley to a new site on the town's Brackmills industrial estate.
The scheme is subject to planning permission but if it gets the go ahead its hoped the move will be completed later next year. The Bridge Street brewery site will be unaffected.
Russell Hookey speaks to the leader of Northampton Borough Council on the day Carlsberg unveil their new bottling factory.
One of the world's largest brewers, Carlsberg is officially opening its new bottling plant today.
30 jobs will be created at the site. It will double the amount of beer that can be bottled and bring back manufacturing to the UK from abroad.
