Oxford's Cowley car plant turns 100-years-old


It is 100 years this week since the first car rolled off the production line at Cowley in Oxford.

Since then, more than 11.5 million cars, including the the Morris, the MG, the Maestro and the Mini, have been made at what is thought to be the oldest mass-production plant in the UK.

Today, Plant Oxford employs 3,700 people and 4,500 Minis are manufactured there every week.
