Mr Raj Nair, the head of carmaker Ford's US operations will be stepping down from the company immediately following an internal investigation into inappropriate behaviour.

Ford said it concluded that certain details of Mr Nair's conduct at the helm of the US branch of its company had been "inconsistent” with their internal code of conduct".
