Malmesbury Town Council showed its support for the quarter of a billion pounds investment which would double the size of Dyson's headquarters. It could also create 3,000 new jobs.

But some people in the area are concerned it might lead to major traffic and parking problems around the town centre and in particular around Beuttel Way near the factory.
