Health Minister for Northern Ireland Robin Swann has laid out plans to ban smoking in cars when children are present.

Those in breach of the proposed legislation would be liable for fines of £50 (€58.80).

The sale of so-called e-cigarettes to those aged under 18 would also be banned under the proposals.

Mr Swann said: “The use of tobacco continues to be a primary cause of preventable ill health and premature death in Northern Ireland.
