“Mission critical” plans have been submitted for an electric car battery plant that could create up to 6,000 new jobs.

Proposals for the “gigafactory” at Coventry Airport were first put forward in February.

Coventry City Council is putting forward the blueprint alongside Coventry Airport Ltd.

Steve Turner, from the Unite union, said the factory would be a “shot in the arm” for the West Midlands economy.
