    It would be wrong to blame Brexit, it was probably due to the decline in the demand for diesel engines.

    Ford not investing in petrol engines anymore. Focusing on Electric.

    Bridgend is not the only Ford plant suffering. Ford is also closing a plant in Bordeaux and cutting thousand of jobs in Germany.
