Japanese car maker Toyota has recalled more than 6 million vehicles in one of the largest recalls in the global motor industry.

With 27 models affected, it is the latest round of recalls for the car giant after safety issues prompted recalls in 2009.

Toyota says it’s part of long standing policy to act swiftly when defects are found.
