Newbury-based Vodafone has announced a £100 million pound investment in High Street shops over the next year. The company's UK base is in the town - and the Prime Minister is there today, meeting staff.
Vodafone has a long association with Newbury. The company began its life there - and the first mobile phone call was made from London to Newbury in 1985. Today's announcement means 150 new retail shops - and 1,400 more jobs.
