Local MP Paul Howell welcomed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to Hitachi’s Newton Aycliffe factory last Friday, where they looked at a series of next-generation intercity trains that are currently being manufactured for UK passengers.

The Aycliffe Business Park factory, which covers an area of over 31 acres just south of the town, employs over 700 workers and will be celebrating its eighth year of operation this year.

“It was great to bring Rishi Sunak to Newton Aycliffe and show him just one of the hundreds of manufacturing firms based in the town and across my constituency,” said MP Howell.
