A Leicestershire company which sold children's toys containing toxins above the legal safe level has been fined £16,500.
Leicestershire County Council Trading Standards officers conducted a test purchase operation and found a plastic doll contained 70 times the legal level of phthalates and a bow and arrow set was 33 times over.
The doll was bought at a 99p store in Loughborough.
At court, the company admitted to two charges of failing to comply with legal regulations and received a fine of £10,000 in total.
