Union set to meet MPs over Jaguar
Union leaders are to meet with Coventry MPs on Friday to discuss their next move over Ford's decision to end Jaguar production in the city.

Four hundred jobs will go when the main operation leaves the Browns Lane plant and moves to Castle Bromwich.

Unions have pledged to fight the move which could include the threat of strike action.

MP for Coventry North East Geoffrey Robinson says they are determined to do what they can to help.

But Ford has said there will be no debate over the decision.

In a statement issued after last week's announcement, the company said it considered Jaguar's current business situation to be unsustainable and there was no alternative to its current plans.
