Ford: Unite to fight any Bridgend plant 'run down'

The main union at Ford in Bridgend has said it wants answers as to how it will keep 1,850 staff in work, while cutting the number of new engines it produces by half.

The American car giant announced it planned to make 125,000 new Dragon engines a year instead of 250,000 from 2018.

It blamed changes in global demand.

Unite has written to workers saying "clearly" the employment level could not be sustained on projected levels.

The union's Wales secretary, Andy Richards, said it would fight any attempt to run down the plant.
