Birmingham Erdington MP Jack Dromey has slammed Dunlop's decision to close its plant in his constituency, saying the tyre-maker has treated Britain and Birmingham 'with contempt'.

However the firm says another suitable site could not be found, and production will now move to its other European factories.
