Alstom set to end train production in Derby

Alstom has warned Derby City Council that it intends to end the building of trains in the city. The news follows fears that more than 1300 workers, or two-thirds of the employees, were set to lose their jobs because of a lack of new orders. It has now emerged that Alstom is planning to go further by ceasing to build rolling stock at Litchurch Lane, bringing to an end a tradition in Derby which goes back to 1840.
The decision raises a question mark over where Alstom will now play its part in building trains for HS2, in conjunction with Hitachi.
