Rishi Sunak announced eight locations for freeports in the UK which will not be charging tariffs on goods entering from outside the UK.

He announced East Midlands Airport, Liverpool, Harwich and Felixstowe, Humber, Plymouth, Thames, Teeside and Solent as the new tax-free locations.

Freeports are used around the world as a way to revitalise industry in specific areas and to encourage businesses to relocate or expand to capitalise on less tax.
