Vehicle brand BMW has been hit by news that it is to recall 1.3m vehicles – after concerns were raised that battery problems could cause a fire.

More than 100,000 of these recalls will affect UK drivers of BMW’s 5 and 6 Series.

A spokesperson for the German giant said they had identified: “…an issue with a battery cable cover which, in a small number of cases, has been incorrectly fitted'.

“In rare cases this could result in owners not being able to start their vehicle.

“In extremely rare cases the electrical system could malfunction, leading to a scorching of the boot floor and a fire may result.

“This issue has come to light through the continuous testing and development of BMW vehicles and some customer feedback.”

Anyone concerned that they may be affected should contact BMW customer services on 0800 325600.
