Ambitious plans to make the UK the "cutting-edge green economy in the world" have been announced by Ministers during a visit to Grimsby this afternoon.
They were set out by the Deputy Prime Minister and Sheffield Hallam MP Nick Clegg and Energy Secretary Ed Davy as they formally opened Centrica Energy's £1 billion Lincs offshore wind farm, five miles off the coast of Skegness.
The Lincs farm is able to produce enough electricity to meet the needs of 200,000 homes-equivalent to two thirds of all homes in Lincolnshire.
In the next few years there'll be offshore wind farms stretching from Bridlington in North Yorkshire to Skegness and Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire.
Nick Clegg is in Rotherham today to explain the next steps in his scheme to tackle the problem of young people not in education, employment or training.
His initiative, called the Youth Contract, is worth £126 million and aims to tackle the 55,000 16-17 year old so called Neets.
Disengaged young people often have complex problems that act as a barrier to getting them learning again, which the Government alone can't deal with. But very often local charities and businesses know what's going to help them.
– Nick Clegg
In Yorkshire, ex-soldiers will deliver motivational sessions to disengaged youngsters through the Heroes to Inspire campaign.
