E-Lites: WHO e-cigarette advice 'troubling'

The World Health Organization has called for a range of tough regulations to restrict the use of e-cigarettes.

In a report, the health body recommended banning their use indoors and said sales to children should stop.

But Charles Hamshaw-Thomas, the director of corporate affairs at manufacturer E-Lites, said he felt a ban on indoor use was "troubling".

He said such a move might have a negative impact in the campaign to get smokers to quit.
