There are hopes of new graduate vacancies and science graduate jobs in a Yorkshire city after a new deal could lead to a new wind energy plant.

Siemens - Europe's largest engineering company - has announced plans to open a manufacturing plant in Hull, to build wind turbines for off-shore energy production, reports the Yorkshire Post.

The German company has announced that up to 10,000 jobs may be created in the area, with the local council leader telling the news provider the boost to the area would be "like Aberdeen if you replace oil and gas with wind".

Carl Minns, Hull Council leader, also said: "It's the beginning of the end of 30 years of economic decline if we play our cards right.

"We have a once-in-a-generation chance to get Hull back to a prosperous city and while I'm leader I'll make sure we'll grab it with both hands."

Siemens have a comprehensive graduate scheme and have recently launched a school of engineering at the University of Lincoln.
