Amazon has revealed plans to close three UK warehouses in a move which will risk 1,200 jobs.

The retail company has launched consultations over the closure of sites in Hemel Hempstead, Doncaster, and Gourock.

An Amazon spokesman for the company, said:

"We're always evaluating our network to make sure it fits our business needs and to improve the experience for our employees and customers.

"As part of that effort, we may close older sites, enhance existing facilities, or open new sites, and we've launched a consultation on the proposed closure of three fulfilment centres in 2023.

We also plan to open two new fulfilment centres, creating 2,500 new jobs, over the next three years."
