LONDON: Japanese carmaker Honda said it was halting output at its British factory on Tuesday and Wednesday due to global supply delays.
Honda suspended output for a few days in December as some British ports struggled to cope with demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted global trade, and goods being stockpiled before a Brexit deal was agreed and ahead of Christmas.
Output had resumed on Monday at the southern English Swindon site after the festive break.
"The situation is currently being monitored with a view to re-start production on Thursday 7 January," Honda said in a statement.
