   2015-08-22 09:06:11    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Qian Shanming

Jaguar Land Rover says that around 5,800 of its cars were destroyed in the recent Tianjin explosions.

The company said in a statement that the vehicles came from JLR assembly plants in the West Midlands and Liverpool in the UK and had recently arrived in Tianjin after being shipped from Britain.

It says access to facilities near the site of the explosion remains restricted and the company is presently unable to quantify the numbers of units affected.

The Birmingham Post newspaper reported on Friday that shares in Indian parent group Tata Motors fell by up to 4 percent on the Mumbai stock exchange Friday.
 
Xinhua news agency reported earlier that 8,000 cars worth around 630 million U.S. dollars were destroyed in the blasts on Wednesday night from a warehouse in Tianjin's port area.
