Nissan has issued a global recall for 2.1m cars due to a problem with the ignition system that could cause the engine to stall.

Around 83,000 cars are thought to be affected in the UK, with almost all being Micras that were built at the company's plant in Sunderland between January 2004 and March 2006. A tiny amount of Pathfinders will also be recalled, but this number is limited to about 10 vehicles according to a company spokesman.
