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'.
Just last week the Labour MP met with the firm to discuss a move to another site in the city, to save more than 240 jobs from being lost.
However the firm says another suitable site could not be found, and production will now move to its other European factories.
