Leyland Dozers Sacked
By Chris Hampson

Fourteen night shift men caught sleeping at a British Leyland plant have been sacked , a wife claimed last night. She said: “My husband rang to tell me that they have all lost their jobs.”

“But they are going to appeal against the decision. I am worried sick.” The men were found tucked up in sleeping bags when management swooped on the priming shop at the Range Rover plant in Solihull, near Birmingham.

Yesterday they faced a disciplinary hearing.
