UK ministers seek closer India ties

Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague and the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne continue their visit to India by heading to Delhi, where they will meet Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It follows a trip to the country's financial capital Mumbai to boost trade and business ties.

They are looking to open up investment opportunities for UK firms in India's defence and infrastructure sector, and attract Indian investment into Britain.

The visit comes as a new government led by Mr Modi has taken charge in India - Asia's third-largest economy.
