Amazon paid £11m of taxpayers' cash despite being one of world's richest firms

Amazon has had nearly £11million in UK government grants since 2010 despite being one of the world’s richest companies. The US firm is believed to have received taxpayers’ cash to help fund the cost of building its vast depots.

Amazon argues the grants enable it to create jobs, with the company’s UK workforce set to reach more than 40,000 by the end of the year.
