Mercedes-Benz buyers in Ireland are in luck, because the carmaker has announced that it is reducing new car prices by 10 per cent.

Is Mercedes coming late to the January sales party, you may ask? Nope. The huge discount is in fact due to Britain's decision to leave the EU, and the resulting slump in the pound.
