Jaguar Land Rover to cut 500 jobs

Jaguar Land Rover is cutting 500 jobs at its Halewood plant on Merseyside, the company has confirmed.
Workers were told the losses were a result of changing the shift patterns that will come into effect from April.
The losses are a mixture of permanent employees and agency staff, said the union Unite, which described it as a "fresh blow to the car industry".
The car maker said last year it planned to cut 4,500 jobs globally as part of a £2.5bn plan to reverse losses.
Jaguar has about 4,000 permanent employees at Halewood and told staff in a statement the losses would affect about 10% of its total workforce when it moves from three shifts to two a day.
