An EU report has found that fidget spinners can cause serious injuries to children.

The report revelaed that light-up spinners with button batteries can come loose and be swallowed, causing 'burns to the oesophagus and intestines.'

Other types of the toy have central bearings that can come loose to create a choking hazard for small children.

The report also states that 'dangerous fidget spinners have been tracked down, stopped at borders or ports, or destroyed.'
