E-cigarettes ban for under-18s to apply to Wales

Plans to ban under-18s in England from buying electronic cigarettes would also apply to Wales after assembly members agreed to the move.

Experts say not enough is known about what damage they could do to the health of young people.

UK ministers also intend to make it illegal for adults to buy traditional cigarettes for under-18s.

AMs backed a Welsh government motion to allow Westminster legislation bringing in the bans to cover Wales and England.

Cemlyn Davies reports.
