Vauxhall chief warns of Brexit threat to Ellesmere Port

The head of Vauxhall has said lack of clarity over Brexit threatens the future of its Ellesmere Port operation.

The company said last year it was committed to keep making the Astra at Ellesmere Port, but it has also said that manufacturing costs at Ellesmere were higher than other plants it owned.
