Future of Vauxhall at Elsmere Port in doubt

The head of Vauxhall's parent company has warned that it will no longer invest in pure diesel or petrol cars at its Ellesmere Port plant.
Carlos Tavares said the future of the Cheshire plant depended on where his company, Stellantis, decided to make new-generation of electric vehicles.
He said a decision would be made in the next few weeks, and depend on the UK government's support of the car sector.
Over 1,000 people work at the plant, with many more in the supply chain.
