Offshore wind has brought hundreds of high-skilled, well-paid jobs to Grimsby, with hundreds more to come. We are now the renewable energy capital of England. I have used every opportunity to promote the industry and bring more investment into the town.
This is the future for Grimsby. We now need to make sure local people have the skills and opportunities for a career in this growing sector.
