Thousands of people have demonstrated against car manufacturer Renault’s plans to cut 4,600 jobs in France.

The protesters gathered in Maubeuge in the north of the country on Saturday, a day after the company announced major cost-cutting measures.

Renault has said six of its French plants are under review for possible cuts and closure, and the factory in the Maubeuge area is under threat.

The company announced on Friday it was cutting 15,000 jobs worldwide in a bid to save €2bn (£1.8bn), after sales plummeted amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, Japanese car maker Nissan announced thousands of job cuts and the closure of its factory in Spain, although its UK plant is to remain open.
