Work has started today on the new £260 million Broadway shopping centre in Bradford. It will create around 4000 jobs in retail and construction. The new centre, in the heart of Bradford, will contain 70 shops and restaurants, and is expected to open in time for Christmas 2015.

The scheme has already won praise from the Prime Minister David Cameron.
