In a statement released today, the online retail giant announced the opening of its UK head office and London development centre at the Principal Place building in Central London on Norton Folgate, between Liverpool Street and Shoreditch High Street railway stations.

The new development centre houses teams of software development engineers, user-interface experts, data analysts and graphic designers working to build new technologies for Amazon's Prime Video service.
