Giant hi-tech tomato glasshouse set to produce millions of the fruit

One of the UK’s “most technologically-advanced” glasshouses is set to produce millions of tomatoes.

Based just outside Ipswich in Suffolk, it houses 250,000 tomato plants and is capable of producing 150 million tomatoes a year.

The glasshouse will eventually stretch for 1km (0.6 miles) in length, in a project costing £30m.

The first crop of tomatoes from the site will hit supermarket shelves in February.
