The online retailer is slowly but surely covering the country.

Over time, Amazon has widened the availability of Prime Now to cover a number of major UK cities. One-hour deliveries are happening in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester, but now the company has turned its focus to one of the most populated counties in the south east: Surrey. From today, customers in Camberley, Lightwater and Aldershot can grab a one-hour slot for £6.99 or choose to wait an additional hour to get their order delivered for free.

As is typical with any new regional launch, Amazon will also offer two-hour delivery slots in surrounding areas. Customers living in selected Hampshire and Berkshire postcodes will now be able to order more than 15,000 items and have them delivered in a two-hour slot between 8am and midnight, seven days a week. The company boasts that it was able to deliver Call of Duty: Black Ops III in just 15 minutes, but it turns out that most people are using it to get their hands on a Fire TV Stick, bottled water and Dawn French's favourite sweet treat: a Terry's Chocolate Orange.
