Short history of how Ford in Bridgend was built

There are concerns about the long term future of the Ford engine plant in Bridgend, after the American car company scaled back planned production of its new generation engine.

The factory has been a landmark on the M4 corridor in south Wales for 35 years, employing 1,850 workers.

A short video history explains the competition for Ford to open in Bridgend - and how it played a part in the UK's most popular car of the 1980s.
