Details of the first 270 jobs at Siemens’ new £200m rail factory in Goole have been revealed.

First plans for the state-of-the-art factory were submitted earlier this year, and once fully operational it will employ up to 700 people in East Yorkshire.

A total of 90 jobs will be for mechanical engineers, along with 55 for electrical engineers and 20 warehouse jobs.
