LDV Vans hit the headlines – thousands of jobs at risk

LDV vans have had their plea to the Government for financial support denied.

The plant in Birmingham, which carries some 850 jobs look at risk along with several thousand other linked jobs.

Management at LDV wanted to secure a £20-30m loan to help them re-badge themselves as Europe’s first green van firm as they felt this was their best chance of securing finance.
