Nissan will not restart UK production for at least another month, it was announced last week.

The Japanese car giant suspended production at its UK plant in Sunderland on the 17th March due to the Covid-19 crisis, with the majority of staff furloughed.  It has now been confirmed that production at the plant will not restart until early June, when a phased return of staff is planned.

Recent days have seen production resume at many factories in mainland Europe, with extensive new health and safety procedures introduce to minimise the risk posed to workers.
