The investment cements the manufacturer’s decision to base the production of their new Astra model at a UK car plant in Merseyside. As a direct result of this, 700 jobs will be created at the plant itself, with a further 3,000 created indirectly through firms which supply vital parts and components for the build.

Livestock Farmer

Since there has been a heightened focus upon animal welfare and a tightening of EU transportation regulations, it is important to manage the standard and method of transporting livestock. The introduction of livestock trailers has made life much easier when moving animals around, rather than having to herd them down country roads like in the old days, you can use a sheep trailer to safely and effectively transport your sheep herd.

Is satellite navigation reliable?

One of the more popular tools modern cars are being equipped with are GPS devices or satellite navigation systems. It is widely known that such devices can pinpoint the location of the device on the globe to within a few feet. With this type of accurate location measurement, it would seem that the tool should be a fool proof navigation device, yet many claim that they are unreliable. So what is the truth?
