Chinese car manufacturer BYD has cut production at one of its key factories due to concerns over the pollution being generated by the plant.

BYD’s plant is located in the province of Hunan and has been the subject of protests from local residents who claim the facility is polluting the local environment. Some even claim it has caused nosebleeds among children, prompting authorities to open an investigation into the site.

It is understood that work on some of the factory’s production lines has been halted since late Sunday with one employee stating that the move has impacted welding, coating, and assembly. Chinese authorities have begun environmental tests at the plant and are doing the same at another plant in the nearby district of Xingsha, The Financial Times reports.
