Bentley has announced plans to recruit more than 140 workers at its factory in Crewe.

The car maker is looking for 90 engineers and 50 apprentices.

The engineers will help develop new models as part of an £800m investment, while the apprentices will be taught key engineering skills.

News of the recruitment drive comes after the company made more than 10,000 cars in 2013 - the highest in its 95 year history.

Bentley is investing £800m at its headquarters in Crewe to develop and build the sports utility vehicle (SUV), which will compete with cars like the Range Rover.
