Buggies Withdrawn In Safety Alert

Two types of buggies have been removed from sale after their manufacturer said they posed a serious risk of injury to youngsters.

Mothercare and the Early Learning Centre withdrew the Push Around and Whisper Ride buggies after American firm Step2 announced a voluntary recall of the products.

No injuries have been reported in the UK, but they have been elsewhere.

The safety concerns do not apply to the newer design of the buggies on which the handle attaches with a bolt and screw.
