    REG LESS THAN Campaigners welcome EU cigarette vote

    CAMPAIGNERS have welcomed new rules aimed at cutting smoking voted for by the European Parliament.

    The revised EU Tobacco Products Directive will lead to larger and more graphic health warnings on cigarettes.

    Flavoured cigarettes will eventually be banned, while e cigarettes will be regulated for the first time.

    Ailsa Rutter, director of anti smoking North East campaign group Fresh, welcomed the directive, saying it was a massive opportunity to reduce the harm of smoking.

    She added It is vital now that the UK Government introduces standardised packaging, reducing the appeal of glossy packs to children and ending the myth some cigarettes are healthier than others.
