Bombardier Handed £188m Southern Contract

Derby train manufacturer Bombardier has been awarded a £188m contract to build 130 carriages for rail company Southern. It is hoped the new contract will help secure the Canadian-owned company's future in Derby.

Bob Crow, general secretary of rail union RMT, said: "The Southern carriages order is both welcome and deserved and shows that Bombardier in Derby is geared up to deliver top-quality engineering.
"However the award of this contract does not let the government off the hook on either the unsigned Thameslink contract or the looming Crossrail deal.
