Just to make the usual complete nonsense of the whole thing, the last paragraph of the article reads as follows.

Do I need to buy a new seat?

The new additions to the child car seats regulations should come into effect in December 2016, but will only apply to any new products appearing on the market.

So parents looking to buy a booster seat next year should start to see that they're not approved for use with children under 125cm and 22kg.

Parents who have a booster seat now will still be able to use the seat without breaking any rules.
Please would you walk a little faster, or get the f*** out of my way.
