Car industry: Ford boss warns of job losses in Europe

The chief executive of Ford Europe has warned that jobs will be lost in Europe as a result of existing and proposed trade deals with Korea and Japan.

Stephen Odell says the deals will mean many more cars will be imported into Europe, harming the sector when sales are below pre-recession levels and the industry is struggling to deal with the issue of overcapacity.
