Marshall Motor Group has confirmed the closure of its Grimsby Volkswagen retailer. A break notice has been served to the landlord as the retailer consolidates at its Scunthorpe site. “All colleagues have been relocated to other areas of the business, where possible,” said a spokesperson.

Family-run Bob Mullan Motors in County Derry is also closing after four decades. Founder Bobby Mullan passed away last year and without him, said the family, “there is no Bob Mullan Motors”.
