An MP has celebrated the awarding of a £1 billion Crossrail contract to Derby-based manufacturer Bombardier, claiming it has saved hundreds of jobs by ensuring the firm did not pull out of the UK.
Derby North MP Chris Williamson told ITV News Central the deal will enable Bombardier to bid for new contracts - whereas if they had lost the contract, it may have meant the firm pulling out of Derby altogether.
He said it was a fitting tribute to 175 years of trainmaking in the city.
