Just in.

Thousands of Clear & Simple Digital Pregnancy Tests have been recalled after some were found to be giving incorrect results.

Manufacturer Guangzhou Wondfo Biotech has urged anyone who has purchased one to check the lot number and expiry date.

Any with a number of DM10220170710E and expiry date of January 2020 should not be used and an alternative kit sought.

The manufacturer estimates more than 58,000 affected tests have been distributed in the UK.
