Workers at the Bombardier plant in Derby have spoken of their relief and delight at today's announcement the firm has been awarded a lucrative £1 billion government contract.
The company warded off competition from overseas to seal the deal to supply 65 trains to the Crossrail project in London.
Manufacturing work on the company's existing contract to supply Tube trains was continuing this morning at the plant in Old Oak Common.
The new deal has secured the future of around 760 jobs, and means the creation of 244 new positions at the site.
