London: Car manufacturer Honda said that it planned to cut around 800 jobs at its south Marston plant near Swindon in Britain by the second quarter of 2013, as per a news wire.

The company, which makes the Civic, Jazz and CR-V models at the South Marston plant near Swindon, said on Friday it would enter into formal consultation with staff over the cuts which would likely take place in the second quarter of 2013.

Honda employs some 3,500 staff at the South Marston plant, which produced around 150,000 vehicles last year. The plant has the capacity to make 250,000 cars annually.

Last year Honda expected a surge in demand and hired 500 workers and invested 267 million pounds in the Swindon plant.
