The VSA is a 14-element interferometer, located at the high and dry site of El Teide Observatory, Tenerife. Here we present the latest results taken with a "extended" configuration at 33 GHz, including images of the CMB and the power spectrum up to l=1500. The VSA is currently being reconfigured with larger horns and longer baselines, to investigate the CMB sky at l-values up to 2500 where there are few measurements to date.

I present this paper on behalf of the VSA collaboration: Cavendish Astrophysics (Cambridge; Dr. M. Hobson PI), Jodrell Bank Observatory (Manchester) and the IAC (Tenerife). The VSA is funded by PPARC (UK).
