Workers at Aston Martin's headquarters in Warwickshire have spoken of their pride as the company celebrates its centenary. A plaque is being unveiled in London this afternoon to mark where the firm started out.
It is at Gaydon where the firm has settled for the last ten years, and where its cars are made.
Bal Choda, who is a Project Engineer at Gaydon said:
"It is a wonderful day for the company. There is a lot of excitement among employees as a hundred years obviously doesn't come very often. It's fantastic to be part of the business at this exciting time."
Alan Vincent who works in the plant's paint shop said: "Everyone is buzzing. What a landmark."
