Car production in Britain reached its highest level in 17 years in November, thanks to rising domestic and international demand for the vehicles.

Latest figures have revealed that in last month alone, 169,247 vehicles were manufactured within the UK, with a total of 1.61 million cars produced in the year to November 30. This is the largest number of vehicles to have been produced in the first 11 months of a year since 1999.
