Amazon and Deliveroo are under investigation by the UK competition watchdog following the US giant buying a significant stake in the food delivery platform.

The Competition and Markets Authority confirmed it would be looking into any potential breaches of competition rules.

A spokesman for Deliveroo said: "Deliveroo and Amazon have been working closely with regulators to obtain regulatory approvals.

"There are a number of major companies within the restaurant food delivery sector and this investment will enable Deliveroo to expand, innovate and, we believe, will enhance competition. This investment will help create jobs, help restaurants to grow their businesses and will improve choice for consumers."
