Morrisons has announced plans to create about 200 food processing jobs in North Lincolnshire.

The supermarket said it was taking over the former Kwoks factory in Grimsby's Europarc business park to launch its own seafood processing operation.

The Bradford-based company hopes to produce 10,000 tonnes of seafood every year and expects production to start by the end of 2012.

Nearly 180 jobs were lost when Kwoks closed the factory three years ago.

Minister for Cities Greg Clark MP, who visited the town last week, said: "Grimsby has been through tough times, but this news from Morrisons is a real vote of confidence in the economic future of the area.

"This investment reinforces Grimsby's position as the heart of a vital cluster for the food processing industry, and will create valuable growth and jobs."
