Professor Fox told Express.co.uk: “It’s a great statement of UK innovation and a flagship of the ambition for the UK to be a global leader.

“It is data and information that is the fuel and the energy not just for policy decisions and actions but also for economic growth.

“There will be a significant business on climate services based on exploiting better value of Earth observation data and the UK has many companies who are good at that kind of activity.
