US attacks prompt Jaguar shutdown

JAGUAR will carry out a temporary shutdown of its Coventry factory in an attempt to reduce the impact of the terrorist attacks in the US. A week-long holiday at Browns Lane will be extended to two weeks, while workers at its Castle Bromwich plant, who were due to start a week's holiday on October 15, have been told to stay away for two weeks. North America is Jaguar's biggest market, taking around half the company's annual sales. The shutdown will mean a reduction of output of about 1,700 across its XJ, XK and S-type ranges.
