Japanese car maker Toyota has been forced to slash production in the UK after the devastating earthquake in its home country.
Essential parts manufactured in Japan are in seriously short supply, which is hindering car production across the globe.
From May 3, Toyota's factory in Bunaston, Derby, will operate for only three half days a week - one and a half days in total.
The plant will shut completely for two days a week and the reduction is expected to last until at least the end of May.
Toyota is also planning to cut production at its factories in the US and China by as much as 70 percent until June.
The company has estimated that a shortfall of around half a million new cars will result from the shutdowns.
Toyota isn't the only car manufacturer to be affected by the devastation in Japan. Mitsubishi, Nissan and Honda have also been suffering from parts shortages and similar hold-ups.
Nissan's UK factory in Sunderland will close for over a week between the bank holidays, starting on Good Friday (tomorrow). It is scheduled to reopen and begin production again on May 3.
Honda has also halved production at its UK plant in Swindon.
