Help

Nissan's new hatchback is to be produced at its Sunderland plant, the Japanese car giant has announced.

The model, which has not yet been named, could lead to the creation of 225 jobs at the factory and a further 900 in the supply chain by 2014.

The announcement comes as David Cameron arrived in Tokyo for a tour of Asia to encourage British trade in the region.
