Around 1,400 unsafe baby walkers, rockers and other goods have been seized from the Port of Felixstowe. 

The dangerous goods were detained by Suffolk Trading Standards import surveillance team, the authority revealed on Thursday. 

Among the items seized were balance bikes, bikes, baby walkers and rockers. 

It was discovered that the baby walker possessed sharp edges on the tray, as well as parts that posed a choking hazard. 

A spokesman for Suffolk Trading Standards said: "The rocker posed an entrapment hazard and the straps could easily detach and the bike posed an injury hazard as there were no means of ensuring a safe insertion depth for the handle bar or seat."

The goods had been destined to be delivered to a warehouse in Leicestershire, but have since been destroyed. 

It is the latest consignment to be seized at the Port of Felixstowe in 2023. 

Around 300 unsafe lights were detained in July, while cocaine worth £140m was seized in November.
