More than 300 jobs have been created in Bedfordshire with the opening of Vauxhall's new pan-European Customer Contact Centre.

Staff at Charlton House, in Toddington, will handle an average of 750,000 calls a year from 33 countries.

The new building joins Vauxhall's existing operations in the Luton area, including its headquarters.

Vauxhall also has a manufacturing plant nearby which builds Vivaro vans and the UK parts distribution centre.

Rory Harvey, managing director of Vauxhall Motors, said: "This is a fantastic move for our business. Having a multi-lingual, cutting-edge team working within hi-tech facilities, will empower staff to focus on operational excellence."
