JLR to create 800 new UK jobs

Jaguar Land Rover is to create hundreds of new jobs at its Solihull plant in the West Midlands.

The car maker said the jobs would support the introduction of new models this year. Approximately 200 of the roles will be supported by the government's regional growth fund, which recently awarded the company £80million. The news comes after Honda announced it is to cut 800 jobs at its Swindon factory, in response to 'low European demand'.
