Morrisons is eyeing a closer relationship with Amazon and takeaway delivery firms such as Deliveroo and Uber Eats after loosening its agreement with online retailer Ocado.

Morrisons said that in exchange for relaxing its exclusivity clauses it had agreed to let Ocado have full use of its Erith warehouse in south London to give it extra capacity after a fire destroyed its Andover warehouse in February. Ocado has had to reduce the availability of some customer deliveries as a result.
