interview with Paul Flowers, Good evening. You are watchhng BBC

:00:00.:00:15.

Look North, coming live frol the banks of the Humber. Our news

:00:16.:00:19.

tonight is dominated by the confirmation that the energx giant

:00:20.:00:22.

Siemens will be going ahead with plans to build one of Europd's

:00:23.:00:25.

biggest wind energy factorids just a stone's throw from where I `m

:00:26.:00:33.

standing right now. Siemens is investing ?160 million. It will

:00:34.:00:39.

create more than a thousand jobs over two sites, one in Hull, one at

:00:40.:00:44.

Paull in East Yorkshire. Working with ports firm ABP, the total

:00:45.:00:52.

investment will be ?310 million Speaking in Hull earlier, Prime

:00:53.:00:55.

Minister David Cameron said it would transform the regional economy. The

:00:56.:01:09.

deal is finally done. After years of uncertainty, the Prime Minister was

:01:10.:01:12.

inspecting the site which whll become a world leading manufacturing

:01:13.:01:15.

centre for the offshore wind industry. It is a fantastic day for

:01:16.:01:22.

the city, for Humberside and for Britain. We are going to be making

:01:23.:01:32.

the turbines here in Britain. The development is centred on

:01:33.:01:37.

Aleksandra. . There are also plans for a new rotor blade manuf`cturing

:01:38.:01:44.

plant to the east of the city. It is a fantastic opportunity. It is going

:01:45.:01:50.

to create 1,000 jobs. It is the hundred million pounds in modern

:01:51.:01:57.

investment. Hopefully, we whll begin construction work on the amount of

:01:58.:02:03.

jobs will increase. It will be a yes and I think we will find out

:02:04.:02:08.

shortly. I have spent a lot of time on the telephone lobbying vdry hard

:02:09.:02:15.

for this. Despite the false dawns, the news was welcomed by thd MPs of

:02:16.:02:23.

the local area. The decision by Siemens India investment in

:02:24.:02:31.

renewables will make the city a centre of energy as well as culture.

:02:32.:02:41.

It was unexpected, the decision to bring across blade manufacttrer from

:02:42.:02:46.

Denmark. It was also welcomd news for the council. I think evdrybody

:02:47.:02:56.

feels that now. City of culture and know this centre for manufacturing.

:02:57.:03:02.

This is a great decision th`t Siemens have made. After ye`rs of

:03:03.:03:09.

gloomy news, there is a belhef that the wind of change is sweephng

:03:10.:03:14.

through the Humberside region. It has taken years to get to today's

:03:15.:03:18.

announcement. It was back in January 2011 when Siemens and ABP fhrst went

:03:19.:03:21.

public with their plans for Hull. Planning permission was granted by

:03:22.:03:25.

the council in May 2012, but then, in October the same year, it was

:03:26.:03:28.

announced that the deal had been delayed until 2013. Then, it all

:03:29.:03:34.

went quiet. That was until this morning's announcement that the deal

:03:35.:03:38.

had finally been signed. Our business correspondent Paull Murphy

:03:39.:03:41.

has been looking at the imp`ct this could have for jobs and loc`l

:03:42.:03:50.

industry. This morning 's announcement brings with it a real

:03:51.:03:55.

sense of a new beginning for Hull. ?300 million buys two factories in

:03:56.:04:01.

1,000 jobs, but that is not all As for the next`generation, yot will

:04:02.:04:09.

also detect a new`found sense of security. I would love to work for

:04:10.:04:17.

Siemens. It is a huge company. It is great news for everybody. As well as

:04:18.:04:22.

a factory in whole, they ard going to build a plate making factory

:04:23.:04:36.

nearby. I think Siemens havhng made this huge statement, it may

:04:37.:04:39.

encourage others, there could be a knock`on effect. Of course,

:04:40.:04:44.

Humberside has a big industry before. The economic aspects of its

:04:45.:04:54.

collapse are still being felt. But today, it is also about a ndw

:04:55.:05:01.

attitude. It means that loc`l people can stay locally and hopefully get

:05:02.:05:07.

the best jobs. I am very happy to have this opportunity. We c`n offer

:05:08.:05:13.

a wide range of programmes which will give the skills requirdd. We

:05:14.:05:20.

want to talk about the future and what we can do to make the college

:05:21.:05:26.

better. Overflow 6,000 of these giant machines are planned for the

:05:27.:05:33.

North Sea. The proposal will mean other companies will need to move to

:05:34.:05:42.

the area to help Siemens re`lise the fact that the factory June. Looking

:05:43.:05:47.

at Germany, offshore wind h`s taken off from bust to boom in under one

:05:48.:05:55.

decades. Could you make a prediction about the economic impact? H hate

:05:56.:06:00.

doing these predictions cause you always get caught out. It whll have

:06:01.:06:07.

a huge impact, it will go rhght down into the workforce. The hard work

:06:08.:06:13.

begins now, reinventing the local economy. The sooner these ghant

:06:14.:06:18.

structures will become a faliliar sight and once again, the pdople of

:06:19.:06:23.

Humberside are looking out to sea for the future.

:06:24.:06:26.

Scunthorpe United extended their unbeaten run to 23 games, whth a win

at Cheltenham tonight. Sam Winnall scored both the Iron's goal in the

:06:31.:06:34.

2`0 win. Meanwhile, Grimsby Town lost 2` at

now, with Paull Hudson. Good evening. It is fairly puiet out

:06:46.:06:57.

there this evening. A touch of ground frost in places. 12 showers

:06:58.:07:01.

in the south of the region overnight, but largely dry. Patchy

:07:02.:07:07.

fog will clear tomorrow. Thd odd shower around tomorrow. But it will

:07:08.:07:11.

go downhill later, with this weather front moving in from the North Sea.

:07:12.:07:17.

A very chilly feel, with temperatures just getting up to

:07:18.:07:20.

eight Celsius. That is all from the late tdam. It

chilly and temperatures look like they will pick up towards the eight

-- weekend. In early spring, a bit of sunshine

:07:43.:07:46.

makes the difference. Today we had some sunshine in the far east of the

:07:47.:07:51.

UK and in the far west. In Northern Ireland and East Anglia,

:07:52.:07:55.

temperatures climbed into the teens. But for most of us, it was gloomy

:07:56.:07:59.

and temperatures were at sixes and sevens. Single figure temperatures

:08:00.:08:04.

will feature heavily over the next few days. We are already seeing the

:08:05.:08:09.

weather coming in from the east pushing the weather to the West so

:08:10.:08:13.

we will see showers continuing in the night. Isolated showers. Most

:08:14.:08:19.

towns and cities just about avoiding a frost but in rural areas we will

:08:20.:08:23.

seek pockets of frost
