Ban for tobacco displays in shops

Tobacco displays in shops will be banned in England as part of a package of measures to discourage people from smoking.

Instead, cigarettes and other products will have to be kept under the counter, from 2012 for large stores, and from 2015 for small shops.

A consultation will also be launched on whether manufacturers should be forced to put cigarettes into plain packets.

Mark Worthington reports.
