Public Health Wales seeks e-cigs public places ban
Electronic cigarettes should be banned in public places, say health officials.
Banning e-cigs would help prevent them undermining efforts to encourage people to quit smoking, claimed Public Health Wales (PHW).
It said e-cigs were not regulated, the amount of nicotine varied widely and users could not tell if they were safe.
A recent poll of nearly 1,000 people for BBC Breakfast suggested most people supported their use in public places and did not want to see a ban.
