 BMW has released a statement that it will be recalling 1 million diesel cars globally over a fire hazard that can be caused by leaking cooling fluid.

German high-end carmaker BMW said on Tuesday it would recall more than one million additional diesel cars, citing a problem with the exhaust system that "in extreme cases can cause a fire".
