Toyota recalls 4,947 UK-registered Prius vehicles

LONDON (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) on Wednesday said it would recall 4,947 of its UK-registered Prius vehicles due to a brake glitch.

    Toyota said the brake in the recalled vehicles may not work as well as it is supposed to because a part used in the electronic brake system may not be strong enough, and could crack.

    The Japanese company said the recall affects 4,947 UK-registered third generation Prius built between March and October 2009.
