Mini adventure leads to major jobs boost

More
than 1,000 new jobs will be created as BMW invests another £50 million building
Minis at its Oxford Plant.

The
investment will see an extra 700 permanent jobs at Oxford, 300 at the pressings
plant in Swindon, and 150 at the group’s transmission factory in Birmingham.

The
German carmaker says the move follows the car’s "astounding success".

Since
production started at Oxford, the number of jobs at the plant has increased
from 2,400 to 4,500.
