There has been an angry reaction to the news that smoking will be prohibited in council play parks, car parks and courtyards in Edinburgh.

Significant reduction in the number of smokers who joined the quit smoking challenge compared to last year.

Forest has accused ASH of "breathtaking hypocrisy" following claims that quitting smoking will lift people out of poverty.

Outdoor smoking bans are driven by council officials and public health bodies rather than in response to health risks or public demand, says a new report.
