Honda could announce as soon as tomorrow plans to shutter its United Kingdom plant in Swindon, a new report finds.
The news site says that the Japanese automaker plans to shut down the British factory in 2022, putting 3,500 jobs at risk.
The Japanese auto manufacturer was due to break the plan as early as Tuesday morning, Sky News said.
Spokesmen for Honda were not immediately available to comment on the report.
According to the vehicle manufacturer's website, the Swindon factory employs thousands of employees.
Ford is also seeking up to 400 voluntary redundancies at its Bridgend engine plant and Land Rover is to shrink its workforce by 4,500, with most of those cuts in the UK. However, Honda might have accelerated those plans because the United Kingdom has failed to secure a post-Brexit trade pact with the EU.
It has also said it was preparing to front-load some production at its plant to ship overseas or build up inventories.
