Bentley has announced that it will halt production at its Crewe facility, even though high-end luxury vehicles have until now been less affected by the global financial meltdown.

Citing falling demand, the manufacturer announced it would stop production for "six or seven weeks."

The shutdown will last from March to May, although Bentley's workers will still be paid during the period. The manufacturer is owned by Volkswagen and employs 3 600 people at its Crewe plant.
