More than 400 recently-bought Peugeot and Citroen cars are being recalled in the UK due to a possible fuel leak and fire risk.

Affecting models including the Peugeot 208 and 308 and the Citroen C4, the recall is necessary as during manufa cture the high-pressure fuel rail pipes were not tightened correctly.

This may have resulted in poor sealing of the rail and fuel leaking on to the engine, which could result in an engine bay fire.

A total of 149 Peug eot 208, 2008 and 308 models built in January 2014 are affected, as well as 279 Citroen models.

As well as the Citroen 4, the Citroen models in the recall are the Citroen 4 Picasso, the Citroen C3 and Citroen C3 Picasso, the Citroen DS3 and Citroen Berlingo.
