The region's tourism industry has backed government plans to attract more visitors to Britain.

The Culture Secretary Maria Miller has unveiled a new partnership strategy between public and private sector bodies to boost tourism.

The aim is to increase visitors number by 40 million by 2020, that would bring in an extra £13 billion in foreign money... and create 200,000 new jobs - many in our region.
