Ford ended car production at its Dagenham plant in Essex after more than 70 years. The move meant a loss of around 3,000 jobs with car assembly at the plant ceasing two years later. Ford unions reacted angrily to the news. They said the real number of redundancies was closer to 5,000 because Ford's numbers did not include job losses among caterers, cleaners and suppliers.
