A man from Dumfries was refused entry onto a Stagecoach bus, after trying to board with an electric cigarette in his mouth.
The company who manufacture the E-cigarettes say that they can be used anywhere - indoors or outdoors - in any place where tobacco cigarettes are not allowed.
Now Stagecoach have defended their decision and say they're policy has been in place for some time:
– Spokesperson, Stagecoach
""Our conditions of carriage state that passengers should refrain from smoking electric cigarettes on board our buses. This has been our position for some time and we would ask all passengers to respect that rule when using our services."
