UK new car registrations at all-time high in 2015

UK new car sales hit an all-time record last year, figures released later are expected to show.
Some 2.63 million vehicles were registered in 2015, up about 6% on 2014 and the fourth consecutive year of growth, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders will say.
Stronger consumer confidence, special deals, and cheap finance have pushed up the figures.
