Toyota Norway is recalling more than 800 cars sold on the Norwegian market between 2010 and 2012 due to problems with power steering.

The E24 news network reported on Wednesday that a total of 830 cars will be recalled in Norway. The affected models are the Yaris and Verso-S.

The car makers said there was a design fault in the electric system that meant the cars could pose a risk. 

"Moisture can collect in the electronic component, which can lead to it short circuiting," said Toyota Norway spokesman Espen Olsen.

The company said they had not received any reports of accidents due to the error. 

The call-back is part of a worldwide recall, with Toyota pulling some 185,000 vehicles off the market. About 130,000 of them have been sold in their home market Japan.
