HONDA has revealed it will halt production at its Swindon plant for six days after Brexit in a bid to avoid any chaos at the borders.

The firm said the plant in South Marston will temporarily stop production after March 29 to avoid the worst of any border disruption when Britain leaves the EU.

The car manufacturer said: "To ensure Honda is well placed to adjust to all possible outcomes, we are planning six non-production days in April.

"This is to facilitate production recovery activity following any delays at borders on parts.

"These contingency provisions have been put in place to best mitigate the risk of disruption to production operations at the Swindon factory."

The company added that although there will be some non-production days the plant will remain open. 

Honda employs around 3,600 people at the plant in South Marston.
