Brompton bikes stockpile parts in Brexit fear

Brompton Bicycles has been "stockpiling" bike parts for its new factory in Greenford in case of a hard Brexit.

The company has rented a warehouse near Heathrow where it has stockpiles of parts including wheel rims, spokes and steel to guarantee supplies.

The fold-able bike-maker has increased sales by 11% to £36-million in the year to March 2018.
