This was Ford's emailed statement to workers at Jaguar and Land Rover yesterday.
"As we have consistently been saying since last year, Ford Motor Company has been assessing a number of strategic options for all our operations - as any responsible business should do.
"A number of actions already have taken place as part of this review for example the sale of Aston Martin.
"The review is continuing and Ford is now actively investigating its options in terms of other possible actions: we are not ruling anything in or out. We are working with our financial advisers to determine the best future for Jaguar Land Rover."
