Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has confirmed that it will shed 1,000 agency staff jobs at its Solihull plant in the UK Midlands over the next two years because of "continuing headwinds impacting the vehicle industry".

Jaguar sales dropped 26 percent so far this year while Land Rover demand fell 20 percent in its home market as buyers shun diesel, concerned about planned tax rises and potential bans and restrictions in several countries. Now the company has told staff at its Birmingham factories that their contracts won't be renewed as it implements a cutback.

Meanwhile, 362 permanent staff will be transferred from another West Midlands site, at Castle Bromwich, to Solihull.

Jaguar reduced production at its Halewood plant back in January in response to sinking demand, but that move wasn't thought to involve any job losses.

Asked in March if there could be further United Kingdom production cuts, Speth told Sky News: "It's quite clear that if there's no demand, then we have to adapt our production levels".
