Seventy jobs are set to be created at a former coal-fired power station as permission is granted for it to re-open using gas.

Eggborough Power Station, near Goole, closed in February after the plant’s owners said the site had “ceased to be economically viable to continue operations.”

The old coal-fired plant, which dates back to the 1970s, is now expected to re-open as a gas-fired power station, in a move which will also create up to 1,200 jobs during construction .

The news comes after the Energy Secretary, Greg Clark MP, granted development consent to Eggborough Power Ltd.
