When Amazon first brought Prime Now deliveries to the UK, only a select number of London postcodes were covered by the service. In three months, the company has expanded to Birmingham, foreshadowing the launch of Amazon Fresh, but now it's giving its launch city some extra love after opening a new delivery depot in Wimbledon. From today, Prime customers in Merton, Wandsworth and Sutton can take use the Prime Now app to book a one-hour delivery. Users in Kingston, Sunbury and Croydon can now also enjoy free two-hour deliveries for the first time.

Prime Now isn't just for last minute presents, it also includes items like toilet paper, batteries and toothpaste, as well as beer. The company also points out that it was able to deliver a Netgear WiFi Range Extender from its Bow delivery station to Canary Wharf in 12 minutes. However, it looks like London and Birmingham are just the start of Amazon's Prime Now rollout in 2015. It says it will expand the service to "further UK cities before the end of the year."
