Toyota is to recall 270,000 cars worldwide - including 138,000 vehicles in the US - because of an engine fault.

The Japanese company said the recall included seven luxury Lexus models - some of them in the UK - and the popular Toyota Crown.

The latest quality problem follows the recall of more than 8m vehicles which had problems with sticking accelerator pedals earlier this year.
