Hospitals in North Wales are taking an artistic approach to educating patients, visitors and staff flouting the smoking ban.

There has been a decrease in smoking on Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board hospital grounds and outside entrances, but many are still ignoring signs and requests not to smoke.
