These stunning pictures show one of Britain's largest Amazon depots preparing for Black Friday - in a warehouse the size of 17 football pitches. The depot, in Dunfermline, Fife, is more than 1.5million square feet and dispatches goods which are delivered around the world. It opened in October 2011 and just celebrated its tenth anniversary. More than 1,000 seasonal employees will join the permanent workforce which is around 1,200 people strong. Gifts waiting to be packaged could be seen stacked floor to ceiling waiting to be wrapped up by workers, and a massive conveyor belt runs through the warehouse. Items are sent along the conveyor belt to be packaged before being sent out for delivery. The site - dubbed EDI4 internally after nearby Edinburgh Airport - has 5,900 solar panels, which generate the equivalent amount of electricity needed to power 320 homes per year. Amazon employs more than 3,000 people in Scotland, across sites and offices in Edinburgh, Gourock, Dunfermline, Aberdeen, Baillieston, Bathgate, Dundee and Motherwell. The UK's largest Amazon depot is in Tilbury, Essex. Early Black Friday deals started on November 8 and end on November 29.
