A local authority has introduced a no smoking policy to all of its public play areas.

Liverpool City Council said the Play Smokefree code aims to reduce the number of children who start smoking after being influenced by those who do.

The policy is voluntary and covers more than 40 Liverpool play areas.

Jo McCullagh, from health charity Heart of Mersey, said the aim is to "protect children in the very environment in which they should be safe".
