South East MEP Catherine Bearder has welcomed new rules that will result in universal mobile phone chargers in Europe.

A vote held in the European Parliament on Thursday brought in new rules for electronic devices.

This means all manufacturers will be required to make any new electronic devices on the EU market compatible with a universal charger.

Ms Bearder said: “This is a great victory for common sense. This will mean that finally every electronic device has to be compatible.”
