Call to ban smoking in playgrounds

It's five years since smoking in enclosed spaces was banned in Wales. Several more campaigns have followed, including one to discourage people smoking in cars with children. Today, an anti-smoking charity is urging a ban in children's play areas.

Elen de Lacy, Chief Executive of Ash Wales, explained further: "We're not talking about the whole park - just children's play areas", she said. "So how about not smoking in their space?"
