The MP for Bristol West, Stephen Williams, will be gathering along with other MP's at the House of Commons later to back the use of plain packaging for tobacco products.

The campaign has been led by Smokefree South West. It's hoped it will make smoking less attractive, particularly to children, and to make health warnings stand out.

On Saturday, Australia is due to ban cigarette branding, which is seen as a huge threat to the tobacco industry.
