An announcement is due imminently from Jaguar Landrover about plans to build new cars at the company's plant in Castle Bromwich in Birmingham after it struck a deal with unions there.

Workers voted to accept a new flexible working deal by 72 per cent to 28 per cent.

Jaguar Landrover has said before it will start building a new model at the plant if it won the agreement of the staff over new working arrangements.

ITV News understands two new models may be built at the factory - with production going from 30,000 cars a year to more than 100,000 cars a year.

Tim Parker from the union, Unite, which negotiated the flexible working deal, said he was delighted with the result and that an announcement from the company on what models would be built there is expected imminently.

A statement from Jaguar Landrover said: We are delighted that the workforce has supported the proposal and we will now more forward with our plans which will help secure the long term future of Castle Bromwich.
