The UK's automotive manufacturing sector is heading for a period of expansion, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).


Nine per cent growth per year is predicted – which should bring output back up to pre-recession levels, and mean 2.2 million vehicles could be produced in our country by 2016.
