Britain's Business Secretary Sajid Javid is due in Mumbai on Thursday to meet Tata Chairman Cyrus Mistry and the BBC said that the Brexit vote had partly caused the delay in selling the Port Talbot facility in southern Wales.

"The delay will be nominally to do two things: one, to assess the impact of Brexit while they mull that over and secondly to see whether there is any result on what can be done about the pension fund," a BBC business correspondent told BBC radio.
