Carlton Packaging has announced the signing of a new 172,000 sq ft distribution centre close to Bedford

And although the company - which is a major packaging provider to online retailers - hasn't said exactly how many new jobs will be created, a spokesman confirmed it was a "considerable amount" given the size of the business.

The new warehouse will be home to the company's SmartHub packaging design and development centre.
