UK car production hit by "perfect storm of events"



The number of cars made in the UK fell last month after domestic demand plunged due to what the industry body called a "perfect storm of events".

 
Production fell 5.5% in June - driven by a 47.2% drop in production for the UK market, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).


The SMMT blamed preparation for new emissions tests and new car models for what it said was a "one-month anomaly".


Longer term, UK car production was as expected, the industry body said.
