E-cigs face being banned in public places in Wales

Wales could be the first part of the UK to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in enclosed public places.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford said the aim was to address some of the nation's major public health challenges.

BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
