Union leaders and MPs are hoping to get assurances that black cab-maker LTI will remain in the UK.

Members of Unite and Coventry MPs asked Business Minister Michael Fallon to support their campaign for LTI to continue production.

Nearly 100 staff in Coventry were made redundant when parent firm Manganese Bronze called in administrators in October.

Administrators Price Waterhouse Coopers have not commented.

A spokeswoman for Coventry South's Labour MP Jim Cunningham said Unite wanted the black cabs to remain in production in the UK.

She said that Mr Fallon had given them his support and that he would ask the administrators to allay any concerns staff may have.

When the firm went into administration 99 staff were made redundant out of a total of 176 workers in Coventry.

Work to solve a steering fault which affected up to 400 taxis made by the firm should be finished on Friday.
