Cheshire East Council has issued an urgent recall of some motorcycle helmets over safety fears, including helmets likely to have been sold for use by children.
Two of the models have been found not to comply with European safety standards while the third model of helmet failed to comply with the US Department of Transportation standard.
It is believed that all of these helmets have been sold by Quads Inn on Amazon and eBay and a small number of helmets may have been sold through the company's own website www.quadsinn.co.uk.
Anyone who has one of these helmets is advised to stop using the helmet immediately.
Details of helmets which have failed safety tests:
Qtech/Jix - Q7/FF007 Full-face motorcycle helmet twin/sun integrated sun visor labelled on the chin strap E9-13.10312
Qtech/Jix - Q998 Motorcycle flip-up front helmet and double visor. Sold in various colours - marked on the chin strap with E9-05.1810. Serial numbers from 34.842.801 to 34.849.200
