London black cab job losses in Leeds

Staff at the site in Leeds which makes London black cabs have been told of job losses.

A handful of workers at Manganese Bronze locked themselves in the Coventry factory last night after administrator PWC was called in because of a failure to gain new funding.

Unite expressed "outrage" that 156 workers were to be made redundant and called on the Government to step in to save the manufacturer of the famous vehicle.

Of the 98 employees based at the dealerships in London, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Coventry, 57 have been made redundant.
