India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived for a three-day trip to the UK today, with one of the first items on his agenda a meeting with David Cameron to announce £9 billion worth of new deals between the two counties.
The deal comes as countries compete to trade on the success of an Indian economy which is "booming as never before" and could see the nation soon become "the world's second largest".
ITV News correspondent Emma Murphy reports:
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has welcomed a "growing and vibrant partnership" with the UK today as it was announced that the two countries would be entering into £9 billion worth of deals together.
Not everyone was as optimistic about the deals though as protesters descended on Downing Street to accuse Modi of "stoking the fires of sectarianism" in his previous role as a governor in his country.
