Earlier, the company had said that shelved plans to close one of its three factories in the UK after an agreement was reached with the worker's union.

The company said its decision to not close one of the plants will lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs in Britain over the next decade, including more than 1,500 in Liverpool in 2011. As Jaguar Land Rover invests billions of pounds in the UK and significantly increases both the number of models in its range as well as overall global volumes.

The luxury carmaker, which employs 16,000 people, agreed a deal with unions yesterday that will see its Castle Bromwich and Solihull plants in the Midlands remain open in return for all new staff being hired on more flexible contracts.

Tata Motors bought the group in June 2008 from Ford for 2.3 billion dollars.
