Google's plans to build huge new London HQ for 7,000 employees hailed as 'major vote of confidence' for Brexit Britain
Google has confirmed plans to expand its London headquarters at King’s Cross and create 3,000 new jobs in the capital.
The firm's chief executive, Sundar Pichai announced plans to build a 10-storey, 650,000 square foot complex alongside its new offices in Pancras Square.
It comes as a major boost following months of speculation over the future of technology firms in the capital after Britain leaves the EU.
Speaking on his first visit to the UK as the technology giant's chief executive, Mr Pichai said it will be the first wholly owned and designed Google building outside of the US.
It is believed the project will cost in excess of £1 billion.
