Auria Solutions, which supplies car upholstery and flooring, has announced that it is to cut 80 jobs. The firm's major customer is the nearby Jaguar Land Rover plant, which itself is thought to be the subject of job cuts and lower than expected production. The job losses will now be subject to the statutory period of consultation which will finalise the numbers affected and set out the timeframe for the cuts. 

A spokesperson for the Unite union, which represents around 200 of the 320 workers at the site, commented that the effects would be felt by the workers affected and across the West Midlands economy.
