Theresa May in Midlands to highlight expertise of British firms

Prime Minister Theresa May is in the West Midlands today to highlight the expertise British firms and academics have to offer.

The PM joined Chancellor Philip Hammond, where they were visiting new research and innovation facilities at Warwick University as well as vehicle manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover.

The visit comes ahead of this weekend's G20 summit of leading global economies in China, where she will tell fellow leaders the UK is "open for business".
