Jaguar Land Rover boss says axing 4,500 jobs is ‘painful’

Business Editor

Britain’s biggest car maker has announced it will axe more than 4,000 jobs – and says Brexit is a factor in the decision.

Most of the job cuts at Jaguar Land Rover will come from its UK workforce. The slump in demand for diesel cars and a slowdown in China have also been blamed.

It’s also been announced that more jobs are likely to be lost at Ford.
