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.

The firm said manufacturing would stop next week. It plans to resume on 20 April, but said this could change.

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.

Operations are still continuing overseas, reports BBC.

Its factory in China reopened at the end of February.

It comes as BMW, Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Vauxhall have already closed their plants in the UK.
