Norton Motorcycles goes into administration

The famous British motorbike company Norton Motorcycles has gone into administration.
The Leicestershire firm was reportedly struggling to pay a tax bill and faced a winding-up order.
Founded in 1898, Norton is one of the last remaining British motorcycle brands and best known for its involvement in motorsport.
The administration puts about 100 jobs at its Castle Donington factory in question.
Lee Causer, of administrators BDO, said: "We are taking all necessary steps to ensure that customers, staff and suppliers are supported through the administration process.
"Our job is to determine and execute the most appropriate strategy as swiftly as possible to protect creditors' interests, bearing in mind the need to minimise distress for all parties."
