A survey of child car seats in Wiltshire has revealed nearly three quarters of those tested were either wrongly fitted or incompatible.
Wiltshire Council trading standards officers found 124 out of the 173 car seats tested could fail in the event of an accident.
Many of the problems related to buckles not being in the right place or twisted straps, while several car seats were found not to be compatible with the car.
Information on how to ensure your seat is fitted properly can be found at the good egg safety website.
