Government to unveil anti-smoking plans

The Department of Health in England is expected to say that it will push ahead with a ban on the display of tobacco products in shops in the coming years.

A consultation will also be launched on forcing tobacco companies to put cigarettes into plain packets.

The measures are part of a plan to drive down smoking rates, particularly among young people.

Fergus Walsh reports.
