Complications in pregnancy have fallen as a result of the ban on smoking in public places in Scotland, according to a new study.
Researchers found the ban, introduced almost six years ago, has led to a decrease in the number of babies being born before they reach full term.
It has also reduced the number of infants being born underweight.
Legislation outlawing smoking in enclosed public places, such as pubs and restaurants, came into force in Scotland on March 26, 2006.
