Furniture giant IKEA is withdrawing wiener hot dog sausages in the UK after tests found "indications" of horsemeat, just days after it withdrew a batch of its traditional meatballs.

The Swedish company said it was removing the sausages from sale in Britain, France, Spain, Ireland and Portugal as an "extra-precautionary measure" as they are produced by the same supplier as the meatballs.
