It's the Rover graveyard

THOUSANDS of new MG Rover cars stand rusting at two disused airfields — a sad memorial to the fallen motor giant.

Some of the vehicles — worth £100million — have been stockpiled for months, depriving the firm of much-needed cash.

Administrators selling off MG Rover’s assets have to decide who owns the 10,000 cars at two Oxfordshire sites in Upper Heyford and Chipping Warden.

Distribution company Axial, which owns the airfields, says it is owed £1million by MG Rover, and has refused to release the vehicles until it has been paid.

But workers sacked from the firm’s Longbridge plant say they should get the cars.
