Toyota says Japan factories now back up to speed after supply shortages

Toyota has restored vehicle output in Japan to "near-normal levels" after recent severe flooding in Thailand disrupted component supplies.

Last month the carmaker was forced to cut production around the world after suppliers based in Thailand were affected by the country's floods.

Factory closures and other disruptions resulting from weeks of flooding have contributed to an 18.5% fall in Toyota's July to September profits.

The output cancellations have come at a time when Toyota was starting to ramp up production to make up for lost output after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March.
