The number of people taking up e-cigarettes is lower than the amount who have quit smoking in recent years, new figures show.

In the last five years the portion of the population who smoke has fallen from 23 to 17 per cent, according to the latest Healthy Ireland survey.

Over the same period the number of people who reported to be e-cigarette or vape users only increased by two per cent, from three to five per cent of the population.
