1,200 CityRovers stranded

A shipment of CityRover cars has been left stranded at Royal Portbury docks following the collapse of MG Rover, reports Channel 4 News.

The 1,200 cars are still on board the ship that brought them from India, where they were built by Tata. But the company which normally handled their import at Bristol has refused to accept them.

Tata's supply agreement with MG Rover is now void, and the manufacturer is thought unlikely to want the cars back.

It is now expected, says Channel 4’s report, that MG Rover's administrators will take responsibility for the cars and their disposal, just as it has done for the safety recall of CityRovers announced last week.
