Bentley is to cut about 300 jobs at its Crewe factory in response to falling demand in the market.
The manufacturer, which is already on short-time working, is looking to shed the jobs through voluntary redundancies. The company employs 3800 staff.
Bentley is also cutting production, by ending all night shifts on the production of its Continental.
The company is also sending employees on an extended Christmas break, shutting its two production lines on December 10 and 11 and opening on January 12.
