A new long-term industrial strategy to help Midlands car firms like Jaguar Land Rover and Toyota is being launched today.

Business Secretary Vince Cable, who's chair of the Automotive Council, will outline plans which it's hoped will boost car sales to other countries.

The council's co-chair Professor Richard Parry-Jones will also help launch the initiative at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
