Car manufacturers in Sunderland are celebrating after the 10 millionth vehicle rolled off the production line.

Nissan has become the fastest car factory in the UK to reach the landmark figure.

On average the plant has built a car every two minutes since production started.

Parked bumper to bumper, the 10m cars would stretch around the globe.

It has taken the plant 33 years to reach the ten million mark since production started in 1986.
