Jaguar Land Rover to cut up to 5,000 jobs

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) will today announce it is cutting up to 5,000 jobs from its 40,000 strong UK workforce.
Management, marketing and administrative roles are expected to be hardest hit, but some production staff may also be affected.
The layoffs are part of a £2.5bn cost-cutting plan amid what industry insiders have called a "perfect storm".
They mean a downturn in Chinese sales, a slump in diesel sales and concerns about UK competitiveness post-Brexit.
