Google has applied for planning permission to build a new £650m office in Kings Cross.

The one million square foot building would be set in a 2.4 acre site, with space to allow employees to bring pets to work.

Office-workers would also be able to travel from floor to floor on slides.

The company says the project would create 1,500 new construction jobs.
