Car manufacturer Nissan officially launches production of its 100% electric LEAF car in Sunderland.

The car, which has received more than 100 updates, will roll off the line at the company's record-breaking Sunderland plant.

Along with Nissan's new UK battery plant, Thursday marks the culmination of a £420 million investment by the Japanese company.

Prime Minister David Cameron said:
"Nissan's record-breaking year last year is a success story for UK volume car manufacturing and demonstrates how our automotive industry is competing and thriving in the global race.

I warmly welcome the production of the new electric LEAF model and battery plant at Sunderland.''
