A new bottling plant, part of a £60m investment, has created 30 new jobs in Northampton and secured Carlsberg's "long-term future" in the town.

The facility will double output at the Bridge Street site and is one of the first buildings to be constructed in the Northampton Enterprise Zone.

A brewery spokesman said the investment "demonstrates to the world Northampton is a key centre for business".

Beers bottled on the line include Carlsberg, Tuborg and San Miguel.

Jorgen Bull Rasmussen, Carlsberg's group chief executive officer, said: "The completion of this project means that all UK bottling can now be done in the UK... it's great news for British brewing.

"This bottling line secures our long-term future in our UK home of Northampton where we have been based for over 30 years."

Known as the Carlsberg Cube the 7,000 sq m site, which opened earlier, marks the final stage of a £60m development on the brewer's site.
