Honda and Daihatsu recall cars over deadly airbag fault

Thousands of Honda and Daihatsu cars are being recalled in Ireland because of potentially deadly airbags.

The fault causes the Takata-made airbags to inflate with too much force, causing metal shards to fly out.

So far, it has been linked with the cause of six deaths.

Yesterday, Toyota and Nissan announced a similar recall over the problem.
