Ford (F) - Get Report has made plans to slash 1,160 jobs at its engine plant located in Bridgend, Wales over the next four years, British television network ITV is reporting.

The move illustrates Ford responding to a decline in global demand and problems with efficiency, ITV understands.

The company anticipates the reduction in headcount to be complete by 2021.
