On my homeward journey on Tuesday evening I could see the staff preparing for, it now transpires, the Longbridge announcement ("Rover plant rescued by pounds 150m grant", 1 April). All of the forecourt vehicles were being re- arranged.
By Wednesday morning a selection of Rover vehicles were set before the ladies and gentlemen of the press. The BMWs remained inside.
The following morning the forecourt was back to normal - not a Rover in sight.
