Ryan Gains, Chief Marketing Officer for Nissan Europe couldn't be drawn on speculation surrounding Brexit as he was questioned by ITV Tyne Tees at the Geneva Motor Show.

He did say the new Qashqai will 'propel the plant into the future' and is a car that 'the workforce should be proud of'.

Mr Gains went on to say the Sunderland plant was a 'record breaker' with the new Qashqai accounting for 300,000 units to be made on Wearside.

It was last October that Nissan announced they'd be making the next generation X-Trail and Qashqai at the Sunderland plant - securing thousands of jobs.
