The car maker Jaguar Landrover will be cutting 5,500 jobs in response to the fall in demand for luxury cars, the switch against diesel and fears over Brexit.

The Company opened a state-of-the-art €1.4bn (£1bn) manufacturing facility in Nitra, Slovakia, in October of last year with plans to employ 3,000 people while the car maker has also invested in up to 4,000 jobs in China.

The Company currently employs around 40,000 people and the layoffs are part of a £2.5bn cost-cutting plan

Management, marketing and administrative roles are expected to be hardest hit, but some production staff may also be affected.
