Jaguar Land Rover (JLR)'s factories will shut up shop for a week in November to deal with Brexit, its boss has said. Asked whether the firm was thinking about shutting the plants, chief executive Ralf Speth said: "We cannot think about it, we just have to do it." JLR has about 18,500 employees in the UK spread across four factories in the west Midlands and in the north west of England. The announcement follows on from BMW saying earlier this month that it would have to shut its Mini plant in Oxford for two days after Brexit.
