Jaguar Land Rover has recorded pre-tax profits of £1.5billion for the year to the end of March.

The Midlands-based manufacturer says nearly one in five of the cars sold are in China.

The company, which is owned by Indian company, Tata Motors believe sales were boosted by strong demand for its Range Rover Evoque.
