And while he was there he was given the opportunity to meet young trainees to discuss their career choices and future ambitions.

Following the visit, he said: “I was delighted to visit the apprentice training centre at Westinghouse Springfields and speak to some of the young trainees there.

“It was clear during my visit that the apprentices were extremely engaged with what they were learning and that they are keen to become some of the next generation of world-class British engineers.

“For many years, Springfields has been one of Fylde’s most important employers and I know there are some exciting opportunities in the pipeline which should see the site continue providing highly-skilled, well-paid employment for many years to come.”
