CAR GIANT Ford is to halt production at its plant in Spain for a short period due to lower demand for its vehicles.

The Spanish plant normally builds just under 2,000 vehicles a day including the Kuga SUV, the S-Max and the Transit Connect van ranges.

The factory in Almussafes near Valencia, which employs 7,500 workers, will close for nine days in November.


A company spokesperson said engine production will also be stopped for 13 days.

The latest announcement comes after a three-day break in production earlier this month.
