there is a ‘real sense of optimism’ in Hull, despite the city having struggled to recover from the economic crisis, Alan John said.

The Labour MP said a recent spate of investment announcements had buoyed the city, which stiill has around 11 per cent unemployment.

Earlier this year, Siemens announced a £160m investment in offshore turbines development, while Reckitt Benckiser is to put £100m into its research facilities in the city.

The City of Culture win, train line improvements and success of Hull FC, as well as the loyalty of companies like Arco, are also helping the city recover from tough times, he added.
