Workers at one of the largest car manufacturers in the UK were given just a bacon or sausage sandwich as their Christmas bonus.

The miserly 'bonus' is part of a tradition served up to employees of International Automotive Components, which fits trim to Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rovers, every year.

Last year the Luxembourg firm, which employs ten staff at the plant, posted 1.9 billion pounds in profits.

According to the Daily Mail, workers at the Merseyside plant branded the free festive buffet as 'pathetic'.

"I feel like telling them where to stuff it. We slave all year, they are making a fortune and this is all they can manage?" one staff member, who didn't want to be named, told The Sun.

According to the report, a spokeswoman said the buffet was a tradition at the plant, adding that 'There's no obligation to give a cash bonus in December'.

Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India-based Tata Motors, runs six plants, five of which are in Britain, the sixth is in India, the report said.

The firm said that it plans to create an additional 4,500 production and manufacturing jobs in the UK over the next five years, the report added. (ANI)
