The chairman of Nissan Europe has said he can't give a precise answer on the future of the Sunderland plant if there is a no-deal Brexit.

Gianluca Di Ficchy told ITV Tyne Tees that 10% additional costs would mean a loss that isn't affordable and is urging the Prime Minister for clarity.

His comments came after Nissan announced yesterday that it was ending the nightshift for vehicle production at the Sunderland plant.

Last night, UNITE the union said it believed no jobs will be lost as a result of the decision, but workers will lose a shift allowance.
