The car manufacturer Volkswagen stand accused of continuing to sell cars after a fault was found with seatbelts in a number of models. The company recalled thousands of its VW Polo, Seat Ibiza and Arona models after the problem with a rear belt buckle disengaging at high speed was identified by a Finnish motoring magazine.

Tenants in the private rented sector in England who complain about problems in their property like damp or mould face a high chance of being evicted - according to the charity Citizens Advice. They say a law introduced in 2015 to ban so-called 'revenge evictions' isn't working. The National Landlord Association point to high overall levels of satisfaction and point out that the figures amount to around 2% of the total number of people in the private rented sector in England.
