Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plans to shed around 1,000 jobs from two of its manufacturing plants in the Midlands due to declining vehicle sales.

In light of the continuing headwinds impacting the vehicle industry, we are making some adjustments to our production schedules and the level of agency staff.

It said it was continuing to recruit large numbers of engineers and apprentices and it remained committed to its United Kingdom plants.

JLR said it was fully committed to its United Kingdom factories after investing £4bn in them since 2010.

The jobs cuts are believed to have been triggered by a 26% decline in JLR's United Kingdom vehicle sales over the first three months of this year, The Guardian reports.

Although JLR saw record auto sales in the 12 months to the end of March of 616,309 vehicles worldwide, sales were down 7.8 per cent in March.

The announcement will fuel debate on the impact of Brexit on the industry, after the company pointed to the uncertainty around leaving the European Union, alongside the challenges facing diesel, when announcing the "temporary adjustments" to its production schedules at Halewood in January, home to the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

But while worldwide sales boomed, United Kingdom sales fell 15.8% because of weakening consumer confidence.

JLR was expected to announce the cuts on Monday, with Brexit and confusion over diesel cars again being cited as the chief reasons for the changes.

While the company did not release a figure, the United Kingdom press, including Reuters, reported up to 1,000 jobs would be shed and production would be cut at its Solihuall and Castle Bromwich plants.

More than 90 per cent of its United Kingdom sales are diesels. In March the market share of diesel dropped to 32.4 per cent, although petrol upped its share to 62.5 per cent.
