Much like how the Pound is dragged up by The City and is far too strong for most of the North & South West of England/Scotland/Wales/NI.

Burberry have obviously been considering this since they bought the site but it's still going to be a massive investment for them. So I'm not surprised they are being so cautious,

I was talking to a senior manager at theCastleford factory and he says Leeds factory still planned to go ahead subject to timing and Brexit negotiations
