The boss of a Suffolk car dealership said there's 'never been a better time' to be a Nissan dealer as he celebrates 15 years at the helm.

Piers Capleton, of Hammonds Nissan at Halesworth, said he had been blown away by the success of the car-marker in recent years.

The public's demand for Nissan vehicles has seen it become the fastest-growing brand in the UK market, overtaking Audi, Mercedes and BMW.

Mr Capleton, who started as a sales manager in 2000 but quickly worked his way up to be dealer principal at the Norwich Road dealership, said: 'We are an extremely successful dealership with a band of loyal customers and staff alike, built on trading on a respectable and reputable basis.

'The Nissan brand has enjoyed phenomenal success. In my opinion, there's never been a better time to be a Nissan dealer.'
