Jaguar Land Rover is to close its Solihull plant for two weeks because of slumping sales in China, where trade tensions with the US are denting consumer confidence.

The plant, which employs 9,000 staff after 1,000 temporary workers were cut this year, will close for two weeks from 22 October. JLR took the decision after reporting a 46% slide in September sales to customers in China, the company’s largest market, accounting for nearly a quarter of global sales last year.
