Production of the Ambassador, the first car to be made in India, has been halted.

Hindustan Motors said it had suspended work at its plant outside the city of Kolkata, blaming weak demand and financing problems.

Modelled on the Morris Oxford, the design of the Ambassador has changed little since it first went into production in 1957.

It was once the only car driven by politicians and government officials.

But the company only sold 2,200 Ambassadors in the financial year which ended in March 2014.
