Primark has pledged to invest £140m into new shops across the UK during the next two years in a plan that will create at least 850 new jobs. 

The value fashion retailer has lifted the lid on plans to open four new stores in Craigavon, Salisbury, Teesside Park and Bury St Edmunds – the latter on the site of a former Debenhams. 

It will also relocate its stores in Bradford and High Wycombe.
