EU plans tougher tobacco restrictions on e-cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes would become a medicinal product under new measures from the EU Commission which are being considered by MEPs.

The EU Commission proposal also includes a ban on menthol cigarettes, along with other flavoured tobacco.

Christian Fraser reports from Paris.
