Jobs hope over £188m Bombardier order

Help

Workers have said they hope the £188m Southern deal awarded to Derby trainmaker Bombardier will help to secure its future in the city.

The firm's success in winning the carriage-building order follows its announcement this summer it was cutting 1,400 jobs after failing to win the £1.4bn Thameslink contract.

Staff member Kevin Owen said he hoped the new work would allow some of those who had been laid off over the past few months to return to the firm.
