A backlash against vaping in US has dented revenue growth at the cigarette-maker British American Tobacco.

BAT said revenues in its “new category” arm – which includes vaping – would grow at the lower end of its previously announced range of 30% to 50% for the 2019 financial year. The overall US vaping market has declined by about a quarter, according to Tadeu Marroco, BAT’s finance director, since the health concerns emerged centred on sometimes fatal lung injuries.
