Chinese firm Huawei’s plans for a £1bn research centre in the UK have been approved.

The tech giant, which is under a security review that could lead the UK government to ban use of its 5G network kit, has received backing for the site.

As “wider comments” could not be considered, the local council planning department gave the centre in Sawston, Cambridge, the go ahead.

Huawei said council officers were “content with the plans”.
