Founded in 1922 as the Swallow Sidecar Company, Jaguar Land Rover Limited has become one of Britain's most enduring brands.
Jaguar Land Rover says it's creating 1,700 new jobs and investing another £1.5bn into its factory at Solihull.
A woman from Solihull has taken her own life, leaving a note for her son blaming the Government for her actions.
A wanted criminal suspected of committing other offences while on licence from prison "steals without conscience", police have warned.
Lee Lynch, aged 50, was convicted of 143 offences - including many where he prised open changing room lockers at leisure centres and taking cash and mobile phones.
On some occasions, he even stole car keys and drove off in the car.
PC Paul Dempsey appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Lynch has twice failed to appear at court to answer these charges, so we are appealing to the public to assist in tracing him.
His offending history shows that he has little regard for other people’s property and will steal without conscience.
He is suspected of committing a string of other offences while on licence, including other thefts and drugs offences, but never appeared at court.
A convicted thief described as the "scourge of gym-goers" has gone on the run.
Lee Lynch, aged 50, from Solihull, was released from prison on licence in April after being convicted of 143 offences from across the West Midlands - many of which were thefts from leisure centre lockers.
He is also subject to a four-year criminal anti-social behaviour order (CRASBO) banning him from all leisure complexes and educational facilities in the region.
But Lynch, from Perch Avenue, Chelmsley Wood, has been implicated in six further offences including attempted theft, possession of Class A drugs, criminal damage and breach of the CRASBO, and has been recalled to prison.
However, he never appeared at court to face the charges.
Solihull tennis player Dan Evans plays Croatian number one Ivan Dodig on the first day of Great Britain's Davis Cup World Group play off in Umag today.
Evans is ranked world number 149 after his performance in the US Open, while Dodig is number 35.
In the other match today, Andy Murray plays 16 year old Borna Coric.
A retired senior army officer has claimed authorities knew British troops in Iraq were at increased risk, before two soldiers from Solihull and Swadlincote were killed by a 400 strong mob.
Six soldiers, including Lance Corporal Thomas Keys from Solihull, and Corporal Russell Aston from Swadlincote, died in 2003 when the mob attacked a police station.
The source, described as reliable, also alleged the incident was part of a series backed by Iran. The MOD has been asked to investigate the claim.
The MOD has said:
"It is impossible to place reliance on information attributed to an unnamed individual. However, if anyone has any new information about the events in question, we would encourage them to submit it to the MoD."
An 84-year-old woman from Solihull has helped to catch a conman who tried to trick her in to handing over her bank cards and PIN numbers.
The 48-year-old phoned his intended victim with a scare story claiming her bank card had been used fraudulently and said cash had been taken from her account.
He told the elderly lady to hand over her bank details, including PIN numbers, in order to block further transactions and then told her a specialist courier would arrive to collect her cards and complete security checks.
The pensioner went along with the story and pretended to be taken in by his claims but by the time he had turned up she had reported the suspicious call to her daughter and they alerted police.
Moments after the 48-year-old emerged from a taxi to collect the cards officers, who were lying in wait, stepped in to make a doorstep arrest.
The man from Bordesley Green is now being questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and police are reminding people to be vigilant about who they pass their personal information on to.
