LONDON (ICIS)--US tyre major Goodyear plans to close a plant in Amiens, north of Paris, impacting about 1,250 jobs, French media reported on Friday, citing labour union and government officials.

The reports by Le Monde and French state television said that the plant could be closed by the end of 2014. Goodyear was expected to make an announcement later this month, the reports said.
