Toyota has given the green light for the next-generation Auris hatchback to be built in the UK, in a vote of confidence for British car manufacturing.

The next Auris hatchback will be built at the firm's Burnaston factory in Derbyshire, where the current model is made. The Japanese manufacturer has also said that its Deeside plant in North Wales would also build most of its engines.
