Nissan announce £125m UK investment programme
Japanese car giant Nissan praised the workforce at its UK plant
today after announcing plans to build a new model under a £125

The vehicle will be built at the Sunderland plant from mid-2013

Ford Fiesta and the VW Polo.
Business Secretary Vince Cable hailed the news as a "clear vote
of confidence" in this country's manufacturing industry, while a
union leader said the announcement was a "ray of sunshine".
