East Midlands inland port to create 6,000 jobs

The company behind a project to build an inland port on farmland near East Midlands Airport has claimed it would create 6,000 jobs.

The six million sq ft (557,418 sq metres) development would be a transport interchange linking road and railway networks.

Residents from nearby villages said it would bring more traffic to the area.

John Hess reports for Sunday Politics in the East Midlands.
