E-cigarette ban considered for Pembrokeshire's public places

A ban on smoking both cigarettes and e-cigarettes in public places such as parks and playing fields is to be considered by Pembrokeshire council's cabinet.

The pilot scheme would apply to about 100 play areas owned by the county and community councils.

The proposals have been backed by two council overview and scrutiny committees.

Councillor Huw George said the scheme is aimed at discouraging children from picking up the habit.
