Heathrow Airport licenses 'first' e-cigarette zone

Heathrow Airport says it is opening the world's first e-cigarette zone.

So-called "vaping" is banned in the rest of the airport but e-cigarette maker Gamucci is being licensed to set up the zone for its customers.

Although e-cigarettes are not subject to the UK's smoking ban, many transport groups and restaurants have banned them along with tobacco ones.
