Lidl announces £1.5bn investment in post-Brexit UK

Discount supermarket chain, Lidl, is planning to open 250 new stores in London as part of a £1.5bn investment plan in the UK.

Lidl's investment plans include new stores across the UK, a new headquarters in Kingston and a recently opened new distribution centre in Southampton. The German supermarket already employs 19,000 people in the UK and will be increasing that number significantly.

With the unemployment rate at record lows and billions of pounds of new investment announced since the Brexit vote, it's time for Project Fear to apologies for their scaremongering and lies during and since the referendum campaign.
