No more Land Rover Defender will be produced from today

UK's longest-living road vehicles and a Queen's favourite one, the last Land Rover Defender stops production from today.

JLR - Jaguar Land Rover the popular 4x4, which featured in movie Skyfall.

Since April 1948, The Defender was representing the very first Land Rover which came on to the market.

The royal relationship with Land Rover goes back to 1948 when King George VI viewed the original Land Rover.

The Queen, who has been pictured at the wheel of Land Rovers, took delivery of her first one shortly after coming to the throne in 1952.

A small event will be held for workers at the Solihull plant on Friday to mark the end of Defender production.
