PRIME Minister Gordon Brown, accompanied by his wife Sarah, dropped into Ellesmere Port’s Vauxhall plant to meet workers and apprentices.
The premier was given a tour of the production line before going into a meeting with shop stewards and union officials.
The visit to the plant was Mr Brown’s second in six months after the Government gave financial support to GM Motors in the form of loans when the Ellesmere Port production was hit by the global recession.
Apprentice James Crimes, 18, who met Gordon Brown said: “When I started they were looking at closing the plant. I was relieved they stepped in with the money.”
