A BBC investigation has found harmful and banned ingredients in a DIY tattoo removal kit that can be bought online.

The peel, which can be purchased for £15, was found to contain TCA - a corrosive chemical, which is banned for use in cosmetics.

The Trading Standards Institute says it is a new product and consumers need to be warned.
