Ford: 1,000 Bridgend jobs could be lost by 2021

About 1,000 jobs are under threat at a Ford plant in south Wales.
The car giant is looking to shake up its European operations, with their site in Bridgend set to be the hardest hit over the next two years.
If plans go ahead, the Bridgend jobs - more than half of the site's workforce - will go in two phases by 2021, as part of 1,150 losses across the UK.
Ford declined to confirm the figures and said it was currently consulting with unions.
It said these talks were ahead of it implementing a "comprehensive transformation strategy".
The Bridgend site produces engines for Ford motor vehicles and employs about 1,700 people in total.
