US tech giant Amazon is to go on a hiring spree in the UK as online shopping continues to boom in the pandemic.
Amazon is to hire 10,000 UK employees as it opens more warehouses in the north and south of England.
It is also creating a number of corporate roles in Cambridge, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng said the move was "a huge vote of confidence in the British economy".
The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated a trend towards online shopping, and tech giants such as Amazon have reaped the benefits.
Now the firm, which has come under criticism over working conditions and over the amount of tax it pays, is further entrenching its position in the UK.
