A campaign to stop the illegal tobacco trade is being launched in Yorkshire. A study in the county revealed that 36% of smokers have been offered illegal tobacco. Yorkshire Trading Standards and York Council are working together to stop dealers who illegally sell cigarettes to children.
– Councillor Bill Urry, campaign leader
"Children and young smokers are often targeted by people who sell illegal cigarettes, making it even easier for them to get hooked on smoking. This campaign is about raising awareness that illegal tobacco is not a victimless crime but harms neighbourhoods and brings crime into local communities."
Anyone with information on illegal tobacco should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or tell their local trading standards team or police force.
