PLANS to create a distribution park at the Port of Tilbury will create 1,100 jobs across South Essex.

Created by Forth Ports – the owner of the port - and development firm Roxhill, the 70 acre development will be made up of warehousing, distribution and other industry.

Are the 1100 jobs for the construction phase or from some yet-to-be-revealed new trade going on at the port? Will that trade be new trade for the UK, or will it be 1100 better-paid jobs lost elsewhere in the UK in favour of more desperate people in Tilbury?
