Siemens has signed a contract with Transport for London to build 94 underground tube trains at its proposed factory in Goole.

The £.15 billion deal could create up to 700 jobs in East Yorkshire, according to the manufacturer.

Work is yet to begin on Siemens' new £200 million factory which will be on a 67-acre site close to the M62 motorway.
