The company said that it had "suspended its advertising" with the publication but added that it would review its long-term relationship once investigations into the phone-hacking scandal were concluded.

Its full statement read: "Vauxhall has suspended advertising in the News of the World. It will reconsider its position pending the outcome of investigations into the allegations of phone hacking."

The general Motors-owned brand joins automotive rival Ford, which yesterday became the first advertiser to openly cancel its advertising relationship with the News International-owned tabloid.
