A NEW £105 million business park in North Yorkshire has been visited by the Northern Powerhouse Minister.

Jake Berry was given a tour of Sherburn2, which has become one of the biggest new employment sites in the region, covering 75-acres with the potential to create 2,500 new jobs.

Mr Berry said: “The Selby district is right at the heart of Yorkshire and well-placed to be a significant player in the economy of the north.

“The government is backing new investment across the region, through practical help such as funding for infrastructure improvements. Targeted funding like this will unlock significant new investment to create jobs and new opportunities.”

Last week Sherburn2 also welcomed a delegation from Heathrow Airport.
