Coronavirus: Jaguar Land Rover to suspend production

Jaguar Land Rover is to suspend all production at its plants across the UK, in response to the spread of coronavirus. Its decision is part of the company's plan to "Safeguard its business continuity". The Coventry-based car-maker has plants across the UK, including Castle Bromwich, Solihull, and Halewood. In a statement, the company said its decision to restart UK production on 20 April was "Subject to review of rapidly-changing circumstances". It comes as BMW, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Vauxhall have already closed their plants in the UK. Bentley has also suspended production at its plant in Crewe for four weeks, due to the "Accelerated rate of infection" and the "Interruptions in the supply chain", as well as an expected "Decline in demand".
