    "Vauxhall has announced it is to slash 900 jobs and cut production at its Ellesmere Port plant. Parent company General Motors said it would reduce the number of shifts at the site from three to two and is aiming to achieve the job losses through voluntary redundancies. GM blamed “ongoing pressure” in the car industry to increase productivity and reduce costs for the cuts."

    Another blow for the UK car industry.......:mad:
