The Japanese car maker Nissan has raised its UK production plans by about 5 per cent and added 150 temporary workers as European scrappage schemes boost demand.

The group, which axed 1,200 jobs at its Sunderland plant in January, said it has seen a jump in demand in all major European markets offering scrappage incentives, including the UK, where the Government unveiled its plan in last month's Budget.
