Japanese carmaker Honda said it would halt output at its British factory from Monday to Thursday next week due to Covid-19 related global supply chain issues, the latest production suspension in recent weeks.

"The situation is currently being monitored with a view to re-start production on Friday 22 January," the company said in a statement.

Honda also stopped car output for a few days in December as some major container ports, such as Felixstowe, struggled to cope with disruption caused by Covid-19, pre-Brexit stockpiling and Christmas.
