Job losses at Manganese Bronze

■ Manganese Bronze’s administrator PwC has cut 156 jobs at the struggling maker of London’s black taxis. The majority of jobs were cut at a manufacturing site in Coventry, while other positions have gone at dealerships across the country. PwC is now trying to get to the bottom of a steering box fault that led to the suspension of sales. The announcement comes just a day after the administrator said it saw “encouraging” signs of a buyer for the firm.
