JCB 'disappointed' over lack of World Cup work

Staffordshire diggermaker JCB says it is disappointed business opportunities linked to infrastructure projects at the World Cup in Brazil have failed to materialise.

It comes as the company announces a 14% fall in annual profits.

JCB sold fewer machines overseas than expected in 2013 but UK sales were up 50%, meaning it's still been one of the most profitable years in its 68-year history.

Ben Godfrey spoke to Andy Earl at Ace Line Plant and Graeme MacDonald, the chief executive of JCB.
