Jaguar Land Rover says it is to halt production for an additional week due to potential disruption from Brexit.

The firm said production at its manufacturing sites will stop from April 8 to 12, shortly after the UK is due to leave the EU.

Jaguar Land Rover employs just under 39,000 workers at sites including Castle Bromwich, Solihull and Wolverhampton in the West Midlands and Halewood on Merseyside.

The news follows an announcement earlier this month that JLR is to cut 4500 jobs under plans to make £2.5 billion of cost savings.
