TEESSIDE has won a £1.2bn contract to turn Merseyside's household waste into green energy - a deal which will now see a new £200m power plant built at Wilton.

It was announced today that 50 permanent and 200 construction jobs will be created by the move.

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority, SITA UK and Sembcorp UK confirmed the new Wilton 11 energy-from-waste facility built at the Wilton International site.

It comes as welcome news after SABIC UK revealed yesterday that 110 jobs were under threat at its Teesside operation.
