A collection of paintings will be put on display in London today as part of Aston Martin's centenary year celebrations.
The paintings by the British artist James Hart Dyke are based on visits to the Aston Martin factory in Gaydon in Warwickshire, and motorsport events including ones held at Le Mans in France and the Nurburgring in Germany.
Warwickshire Fire and Rescue have been called to a fire near the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon. 7 vehicles were found to be on fire around 3.30am this morning at a car storage area. Some of the surrounding bush and scrub area was also alight.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Business Secretary Vince Cable, are in Warwickshire today to announce the latest government support for UK advanced manufacturing.
The ministers have headlined the day with a visit to Aston Martin in Gaydon, to see the new 'Rapide S' vehicles coming off the production line – a development supported by £1.6million from the Regional Growth Fund.
The move is expected to create 20 new jobs and protect over 70 current roles at Aston Martin's headquarters in Gaydon – plus it's new facility in Coventry.
