AstraZeneca - with base in Brixham - announces massive plans in Cambridge
HI-TECH firm AstraZenaca,which has an environmental laboratory in Brixham, has announced £330million plans to create a new HQ in Cambridge.
The firm, one of the Bay's larger employers, says the plans will bring 2,000 jobs to the city.
The company has said that the consolidation of its research and development work at one facility over the next three years will have an impact on its other sites.
It is not yet known what the impact, if any, will be in Brixham.
Nobody was available at the Freshwater Quarry factory tonight.
AstraZeneca employs around 6,700 people in the UK.
Its site in Brixham is one of the Bay's few examples of high-quality, high-pay businesses.
