CAR manufacturer Toyota is recalling more than 35,000 UK cars after it discovered faults that could deactivate airbags, cause seats to move while driving and break steering columns.

The three separate issues affect some RAV4, Hilux, Yaris and Urban Cruiser models, Toyota said.

The Japanese company said there had been no reports of accidents, injuries or fatalities linked to the issues anywhere in the world, but it was recalling the 35,124 UK-registered vehicles in line with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) code of practice.

Toyota issued a major recall of 75,000 UK vehicles in 2012, after possible steering faults and water pump failures were discovered.

In 2013, the manufacturer was among four Japanese firms to recall around 3.4 million cars over faulty airbags.
