Vauxhall Astra: Ellesmere Port manufacture 'depends on Brexit'

The next generation of the Vauxhall Astra will be built at its Ellesmere Port car plant if a satisfactory Brexit deal is reached, its owners have said. Currently the Vauxhall and Opel Astra are built in Ellesmere Port and in Gliwice, Poland. It said the decision on the allocation to the Ellesmere Port plant "Will be conditional on the final terms of the UK's exit from the European Union and the acceptance of the New Vehicle Agreement, which has been negotiated with the Unite trade union".

Vauxhall Motors opened the Ellesmere Port plant in Cheshire in 1962.
