    'Tens of thousands' of jobs at risk, Jaguar Land Rover boss tells PM

    Britain’s biggest car manufacturer, Jaguar Land Rover, has launched a blistering attack on Theresa May’s Brexit plans, saying “tens of thousands” of jobs in the car industry could be lost if the UK crashed out of the EU without a deal.

    Ralf Speth, the company’s chief executive, told the prime minister that he could not say for certain that any of the automative giant’s manufacturing plants in Britain, which employ 40,000 people, could continue to operate after Brexit day.

    As May prepared to take to the stage herself, he told a major Birmingham car industry summit that the firm, one of the country’s biggest exporters by value, would not be able to continue making cars if the motorways to and from Dover became a car park.

    Well at least we wont have to worry about tariffs on our cars because we will have no car industry.
