Sportswear chain JD Sports plans to build a work campus for 2,000 workers to rival Facebook, Google and Nike.

The retailer was granted planning permission to improve its hub in Pilsworth Road, Bury, with a sports area, crèche and restaurant.

The sports firm said its current campus facilities "did not match" companies like Facebook, Google and Nike when attracting workers to the business.

JD Sports said it hoped the site would "cement its future" in Bury.

The retailer first opened a stall in Bury in 1981 and it currently operates in three office buildings in the town.

The firm said it would invest millions of pounds into its Pilsworth Road project, which includes a two-storey crèche for up to 120 of the employee's children, a four-storey office hub and a gym.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
