Derbyshire is on the road to over 100 new jobs as the latest Markham Vale development begins.

Work has started on a new road to link the A632 at Long Duckmanton with the M1 and open up the western section of the site for development.

It is expected to be completed by March.

Cars part distributor Andrew Page has also moved on to the site, with 120 jobs set to be created and McDonalds has opened a new drive-through restaurant this week bringing a further 50 jobs.

Derbyshire County Council has invested £77m in the site.
