Nissan affected by volcanic ash
* Nissan suspends production * Parts supply disrupted * Length of suspension unknown...
Nissan is to stop building three of its models in Japan tomorrow because the cloud of volcanic ash has prevented parts reaching its factories.
It has been unable to obtain air pressure sensors from the Irish Republic, which means it has had to suspend building its Cube, Murano and Rogue models.
Two production lines will be closed at its Oppama plant in Yokosuka, and both lines at its Kyushu factory, leading to a delay in building 2000 vehicles.
Nissan has not yet decided whether it will have to suspend production for Thursday and beyond.
