A firm on Tyneside expects to create one thousand engineering jobs by 2014.

Offshore Group Newcastle, in Wallsend, has received a government grant to make a prototype of a new foundation for offshore wind turbines.

OGN then hopes to build a factory on North Tyneside to mass produce the new technology.

The black and yellow structures in the artist's impressions are the wind turbine 'jackets' which the company produces.
