Two British Labour Party lawmakers - Bob Ainsworth and Jim Cunningham -and eight employees from the Browns Lane factory in Coventry distributed leaflets and brandished picket signs outside a theatre on Wednesday where Ford held an event to promote its new Focus model.

The US car manufacturing giant was hosting a preview presentation for the new model before the start of the Paris Motor Show on Saturday.
