Amazon warehouse one of Europe's 'most high-tech buildings'

Amazon started out as a book-seller based in a garage in suburban America in 1995. Today it is worth about $1 trillion.

It recently opened its second warehouse in Leicestershire, close to East Midlands Airport.

One employee - Andrea Cook Ciccia - used to work in South America.

"It's quite funny to say that I worked in the Amazon and I work for Amazon now," she said.

You can see this story in full on BBC Inside Out East Midlands at 19:30 BST on Monday on BBC One, or via iPlayer for 30 days afterwards.
