This week, the UK’s 2020 budget was announced and ITV News was in Leigh for the day to see how this would affect the local people and businesses. With Leigh having changed to a Tory stronghold in the last election after being Labour for almost 100 years, this budget is important to see just how the smaller towns and businesses will benefit in the year to come from the Government's plans and planned changes.

Hilltop Products Director Steve Hill was invited to meet the ITV team and offer his thoughts on how the budget might affect or help businesses alongside other local business owners and people. They spoke both before the budget was announced and afterwards to see what was covered.

Once that was done, ITV News also visited the Hilltop Products warehouse to see how a local business such as ourselves work on a daily basis to get a deeper insight as to how government changes could affect people. It was great to see Leigh businesses getting some visibility on the news.
