Work on a £7m college in Cumbria teaching people the skills needed for future nuclear and energy projects has been completed.

Work started on Britain's Energy Coast Construction Skills Centre at Lillyhall, Workington, last year.

The centre of excellence, on the Lakes College site, will cater for about 600 students when it opens fully in the summer.

It aims to help people gain vital skills for the nuclear industry.

The project was managed by Cumbria County Council, built by Esh Construction, and funded by Britain's Energy Coast in partnership with Nuclear Management Partners, Britain's Energy Coast Campus and Lakes College.

Cllr Tony Markley, said: "I am delighted by the way we've all pulled together to create what will be a benchmark education and training facility for West Cumbria.

"We're all looking forward to seeing the finished product and to having students coming through its doors for the first time."
