Jaguar Land Rover has announced 4,500 global job losses with the majority being made in the UK with voluntary redundancies being offered.

The announcement deals a blow to an iconic British brand which has stood the test of time.

Not least because it is favoured by famous faces including the Royal Family.

From the Queen Mother to Prince Harry, they've all taken a Land Rover for a spin.
